This project-based first-year seminar introduces students to archival research in Women’s Studies and Women’s History. Students will explore the same primary sources that feminist historians and scholars use in their research: both manuscript materials such as letters and diaries and print materials such as student newspapers and vintage cookbooks. Every other week students will be introduced to one set of such materials in one of the research libraries on the U-M campus. They will then return to that library to conduct research in these materials on their own and report back to the class on their findings. Through these mini research projects, students will develop both their research skills and their ability to use analytic tools central to Women's Studies and History.
