TRIAL: Defining Gender, 1450-1910

We have a trial of Defining Gender, 1450-1910 from Adam Matthew Digital Ltd until 25th October 2013.

To access this trial go to: http://www.gender.amdigital.co.uk.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/

Note that PDFs cannot be downloaded during the trial, but documents can be read on screen. If we were to purchase or subscribe to this resource we would be able to download PDFs.

The study and analysis of gender, leisure and consumer culture has now become one of the most vibrant areas of social, cultural and intellectual research, transcending traditional disciplinary boundaries. This exciting collection of original source material from British and European archives will enrich the teaching and research experience of those studying history, literature, sociology, education and cultural studies from a gendered perspective.

The broad range of thematically organised documents from 21 libraries provides an excellent opportunity for comparative study and research. Manuscripts, printed works and illustrations combine to address the key issues from both masculine and feminine perspectives. They are indexed to provide ready accessibility for students by person and subject across all five sections.

After trying Defining Gender, 1450-1910, please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.

I tried to have a look at one document. The PDF never appeared.

Sorry, Adam Matthew don't allow PDFs to be downloaded in trials, only for purchasers / subscribers. But you can click on the thumbnail image to view the document on-screen. I'll amend the wording of this post and the one for our other Adam Matthew trial to make this clear.

From the perspective of a postgraduate history student, the thematically organised documents are an excellent resource and they would make a valuable contribution to research projects within the university.

The content of this resource is relevant and extremely useful to my research. It appears wellorganised and locating sources is relatively straightforward.

An excellent and entirely useful resource.

This is a well organised resource that will be of great value to UG, PGT, and PGR students and academic staff across disciplines in the humanities and, to some degree, the social sciences. The selection of primary and secondary material is representative and allows advanced students to touch the pulse of current trends in research. I would expect this resource to be widely uses across SoTA and HLC, also Law and Social Justice, perhaps, to some degree.

I would like to know more about Adam Matthew's intentions regarding updates and expansion. While the collection of primary sources will last some time, the secondary material will at some point in the future benefit from updates and additions.
