Brown University Women Writers Project


"The Women Writers Project textbase is a collection of over 200 English texts by women from the period 1450-1850. The collection is designed to support a wide range of activities, including new research on texts and cultural history, and innovative approaches to teaching. It enables scholars to recover and disseminate the range of writings in English by women and it creates opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to learn - through textbase development, modern textual editing and collaborative research."


"The Women Writers Project is primarily supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Mellon Foundation, and Brown University. (See the Brown WWP Newsletter (Spring, 1996), "From the Director" for a more detailed discussion of present and future funding of the project.)

The WWP is a non-profit enterprise, headquartered at Brown University."

– Carole Mah, from Brown University WWP WWW Home page

The WWP textbase is now available online, for subscribing institutions.
