Summer has ended and it was a good one for the Feminist Theory Papers. Over the summer, the FTP received five new collections! We are proud to announce the addition of the papers of Linda Martin Alcoff, Jacqueline Bhabha, Diane Middlebrook, Linda Nicholson, and Barbara Herrnstein Smith. Alcoff, Bhabha, and Smith will all be available for research use shortly. The collection has expanded beyond physical collections and now has over 100 committed donors. Please see our website for the full list of future and current donors.
Along with these exciting additions, I am pleased to announce that the Teresa Brennan papers have been processed and the finding aid is in progress. Those materials will be fully ready for research use within the next couple of weeks. The Brennan collection is large and extremely interesting, with materials ranging from 1968 to 2002. More details on the collection very soon!
Finally, we, at the Feminist Theory Papers, have been busy preparing for upcoming projects. We have just launched our effort to create an innovative, inclusive web interface for the Pembroke oral histories that were recently digitized. With the help of volunteers and students, we hope to have the beginnings of a working site up and running in May of 2011. Stay tuned!
As you can see, it has been an exciting summer for the FTP. Here’s to a new academic year, and many new additions.
