The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women's Education is an online locus of scholarship on the history of women’s higher education. The Center aims to foster inquiry and dialogue on how the history of women’s education has informed contemporary life and how it will shape the global future. Through its blog, exhibits, instructional lesson plans, and digital collections the Center provides informative materials and a digital space for teaching and learning on these topics.
This semester Emma Kioko '15 and Grace Pusey '15 are collaborating on a Praxis III independent study course titled Black at Bryn Mawr, a project that will illuminate the history and experiences of Black students, faculty, and staff at the College. Using Bryn Mawr Special Collections as well as primary sources archived outside of the College, they are analyzing the ways in which Bryn Mawr has chosen to record, remember, and represent racism in its history. Using the archives, they are identifying spaces of both racial conflict and conversation on campus in order to develop a final project in the form of a campus walking tour and a digital historical record.

By sharing our course blog, along with links to my syllabus and digital resources, I hope to begin a conversation about how we teach women's education history in the college classroom. »

Perhaps because the CFP for the Greenfield Center conference, Women's History in the Digital World 2015, is due later this week, I spent a lot of time over Winter Break thinking about how conferences bring us together, and about how we support each other and build audiences for our work in digital histories of women, gender, and sexuality. »
