Women Writers Online: Free in March 2020 and Teaching Resources

Thursday, November 14, 2019  

The Women Writers Project is happy to confirm that Women Writers Online will again be free for the month of March, in celebration of Women’s History Month. This collection includes more than 400 texts written or translated by women between 1526 and 1850 (for a current list see this link).

This is also a call for participants in the WWP’s teaching partners program. Teaching partners collaborate with us to create activities, assignments, and syllabi. You can read more about the program and see some of the materials developed by our partners at this link. These include assignments that use not only WWO but also Women Writers in Review, an open-access collection of around 600 reviews and other documents that respond to texts by the authors in Women Writers Online.

We also welcome proposals that make substantive use of the newly released Women Writers Vector Toolkit, which supports web-based explorations of relationships between words in the WWO collection, using word embedding models.

(No idea what that means? Start here.)

If you’re interested in becoming a teaching partner, please email us (wwp@northeastern.edu) for more information. If you’d like to work with Women Writers Online prior to March, and you don’t have institutional access, we are happy to set up a trial (more details on WWO licensing and trials are available here). And finally, if you have questions about any of the WWP’s publications, or suggestions for texts that we should add to our collections, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
