- Members of the cluster co-founded the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, which brings together modernist researchers in Scottish Universities for a regular programme of one-day conferences and workshops.

- The Imprints of the New Modernist Editing offers a series of knowledge exchange and public engagement activities focused on new editions, including workshops and an exhibition of works by practitioners associated with the New Modernist Editing Network.
- Ongoing regular activities include the Finnegans Wake and Adorno Reading Groups, which bring together a wide range of participants across and beyond the University for weekly discussions, and the Transatlantic Literary Women series of free public talks, workshops, symposia, and a reading group, all sponsored by the US Embassy/British Association of American Studies (BAAS) Small Grants Programme. Glasgow’s Socialist Theory and Movements Research Network, housed in the School of Critical Studies, hosts a regular series of interdisciplinary seminars and conferences and acts as a focus for cooperative research for both staff and student.
