Voices from the “Early Days”: Women’s, Gender and Feminist Studies Teaching at Edinburgh

An ongoing oral history project to identify and capture the voices of those feminist academics who introduced women’s, gender and feminist studies to the University of Edinburgh; to trace their stories and career histories; and to map the development of WGFS teaching and feminist classrooms in the institution over time.

A preliminary study, the data gathered will inform ongoing work through genderED to create an institutional history of WGFS and sexualities studies, as well as providing resources for other comparative and collaborative projects, such as Teaching Feminisms and Transforming Lives (TFTL).

We are currently compiling an online archive in order to make the oral histories available for future transcription, research and analysis. (Led by Radhika Govinda).
