The Internet has inspired several great collections of women’s work on line. This panel will explore these efforts to recover and disseminate women’s writing via digital technologies and the effect on the canon, research, and pedagogy. Questions addressed might include
What technologies are you using to preserve the materials?
What sources of funding are available for scholars working on women writers and digital projects?
How you are using these materials in your research and teaching?
What kinds of technical and administrative problems have you encountered as you work to digitize women’s writing?
How are the works of women writers faring compared to other groups in terms of garnering funding and support?
