TRIAL: Women and Social Movements, International - 1840 to Present

We have a trial of Women and Social Movements, International - 1840 to Present from Alexander Street Press. This trial has been extended until 16th November 2013.

To access this trial go to: http://wasi.alexanderstreet.com.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/

Women and Social Movements, International is a landmark collection of primary materials. Through the writings of women activists, their personal letters and diaries, and the proceedings of conferences at which pivotal decisions were made, this collection lets you see how women’s social movements shaped much of the events and attitudes that have defined modern life.

This final release (September 2013) includes about 4,660 sources spanning approximately 150,000 pages, as well as links to 124 online resources. It also includes 25 scholarly essays that place the resources within a broader interpretive framework and guide users to particularly valuable documents.

After trying Women and Social Movements, International - 1840 to Present, 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.

This is a collection with a wide chronological and geographical range; it contains documents in a number of languages, including multilingual texts. Many of the women whose activities are documented here were significant literary or political figures in their national contexts, so I can see the collection being used for research and teaching over a number of fields: history, modern languages, politics / law (human rights).

This is a great resource and I can definitely see myself using it for research and teaching (especially on courses on humanitarianism, imperialism and internationalism). The chronological and geographical range of documents is broad, but the collection also allows for in depth study of particular institutions or organisations. This is useful in my own research, but I could also see it being a great resource for dissertation projects.

This is an important and wide-ranging collection which has great potential for use in research and teaching across disciplines. The international and multilingual dimension is innovative and valuable. Many students have an interest in gender / women's history, and this collection would significantly extend our current resources.

As a history student I have an interest in gender/women's history and this is an invaluable resource.It will really benefit my study of this topic, particularly when considering an international perspective.

As a current third year history student this resource has proved invaluable material when I have been researching women's history. Especially useful and beneficial with regard to HIST374.

This will be extremley helpful when doing a research essay on the women's movement. The resource has a wide range of sources that I would find useful regarding HIST374.
