The Aspect Magazine Project is a digital archive of a small but significant literary journal, Aspect magazine, published between 1969-1980.
Aspect Magazine (1969-1980) was the creation of Edward J. Hogan, of Somerville, Massachusetts. Hogan was a history major at Northeastern University in March of 1969 when he launched a magazine featuring social and political commentary by a small group of university students. Hogan subsequently expanded that magazine to include poetry, fiction, graphic design, and literary news and reviews. Aspect published many writers, poets, and artists that represented the “Boston Scene” of the late 1960s and 1970s.
The Aspect Archive is designed for researchers, readers, writers, and students interested in the intellectual history of the New England region. As a scholarly resource, the archive increases access to the conversations and intellectual exchanges associated with the production of literature in New England among committed poets, artists and intellectuals.
