Project Detail


Reading and Writing Women Wiki

Partner(s): Lisa Gordis - Barnard College

The Reading and Writing Women Wiki provides students in Professor Gordis' course with a repository of assignments and bibliographic material as well as a collaborative workspace for the students, who work together to develop new research about little-studied literary figures. Students are encouraged to create and share their own "commonplace books," which colonial women used to copy segments of texts that they wanted to save for later reading. The wiki's collaborative environment encourages students to be more fully aware of the complexities of the relationships among writing, publication, print, and reading, and to think about these relationships more flexibly.
