Summary

Addressing current trends in feminist historical and literary scholarship in relation to digital media, this book looks at how the field has developed since the first feminist archival research projects were initiated over twenty years ago.

The contributions to the book explore three key concerns: projects which document the history of women’s political activism; the digitising of primary document archives by women; and the impact of digitisation on historical research about women. In addition, the book sheds light on the way in which historians and literary scholars fuse digital sources with traditional forms such as books and journal articles to imagine different and ground-breaking histories of women’s experience.

With the field of feminist history and its relationship to the digital world in a dynamic position, the contributions to this volume can be read as signposts for future research in the field, posing questions for scholars and readers to explore in more detail. This book was originally published as a special issue of Women’s History Review.
