Expanding the Reach of the Global Feminisms Oral History Archive
September 1, 2019 – August 31, 2021
Expanding the Reach of the Global Feminisms Oral History Archive builds on the Global Feminisms Project (GFP), an archive and “living resource” whose purpose is to provide raw material for scholars of women’s movement activism to use in teaching and research; the grant launches a new phase in which the team proposes to enhance GFP through new pedagogical and research collaboration among faculty at U-M and new domestic and international partnerships. As part of this expanded project, the team plans ambitious activities including adding new country sites, creating cross-regional thematic sites, and enhancing existing country sites by adding interviews, introductory films, further documentation, and translations. Team members include PI Abigail Stewart (Sandra Schwartz Tangri Distinguished University Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies), Sueann Caulfield (Associate Professor of History/Residential College), Wang Zheng (Professor of Women’s Studies/History/Research Scientist of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender), Abigail Dumes (Assistant Professor, Women’s Studies), and Elisha Renne (Professor Emerita of Anthropology, and Afroamerican and African Studies).
