The WomenWriters database currently contains references concerning 4.000 authorstheir works and over 22.000 reception documents. To expand the research networks about female participation in the literary field we intend to:

  • connect this data to other national collections in women’s literature;
  • build a research application for scholars; and
  • create a set of standards to exchange data based on CLARIN guidelines for shared metadata and service-based infrastructures.

These standards will be implemented by international partners: the Selma Lagerlöf Archive and the Literature Bank in Sweden; the Serbian Knjiženstvo; the Norwegian Female Robinsonades and the Swiss Women in Arcadia (1690-1800) databases.
