Dataset on translations and reviews in modernist journals now published

We have published a dataset of translations and reviews of foreign works published in Iberoamerican modernist journals.

At the moment the dataset includes all translations or reviews from La Revista (Barcelona) from 1915 to 1936; the second period of Proa (Buenos Aires) from 1924 to 1926, and Sur (Buenos Aires) from 1931 to 1939.

We will add data from more Iberoamerican journals in the future.
