About WHDW

Women’s History in the Digital World, the biennial conference at Bryn Mawr College, has brought together scholars working on women’s history projects with a digital component, exploring the complexities of creating, managing, researching and teaching with digital resources. The conference originated through the work of The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education, founded in 2011 as an online resource for materials related to the history of women’s education located at Bryn Mawr College Special Collections.

When brought together, the collections in this archive will enable new studies in political reform and women’s rights, sexuality and body image, religion, race and class, as well as major domestic and international events.
