Women and Social Movements in the United States 1600-2000, a website and online journal at:
has undertaken an initiative to enhance its use, integration, and interpretation of visual images to illustrate, interpret, and explore the rich history of women’s activism.
WASM seeks contributions in three particular categories:
First, WASM seeks more images to augment projects that already appear on the website.
Second, WASM will develop interpretative materials, both for individual images in projects and for particular categories of images, grouped by theme, subject, symbol or medium in order to provide in depth analysis of specific images as well as examples of how scholars and teachers can use such materials.
Third, WASM encourages development of more visually based projects. Posters, photographs, cartoons, drawings and paintings are, in themselves, “texts” that document the history of women’s social activism.
WASM looks forward to working with collaborators and contributors. For more information, please contact:
