Alberta Women's History: Open Call for Historical Materials

December 08, 2010

The Alberta Women's Memory Project (AWMP) is digitizing original historical materials that document the history of women in Alberta.  They will be made available to students and the public on our website: http://awmp.athabascau.ca/.

If you have any diaries, letters, newsletters, clippings, photographs, periodicals, artwork, audio files, videos, or other original materials relating to women in Alberta, and wish to have them digitized and featured on our site, please contact the AWMP at awmpinfo@athabascau.ca.

We are especially interested in acquiring materials related to:

  • Histories of Indigenous and Métis women;
  • Health and reproductive rights;
  • Music, theatre, literature, art, and crafts;
  • Histories of ethnic and racialized women;
  • Women's migration experiences;
  • Histories of Franco-Albertan women;
  • Feminism in Alberta;
  • Women and politics;
  • Women, employment, and labour;
  • Women in religious communities;
  • Personal experiences of women;
  • Women's participation in social justice movements;
  • Women in community organizations and events.

The AWMP is a joint community-university initiative dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of women in Alberta. For more information about the AWMP, visit our website at http://awmp.athabascau.ca/.

People wishing to share historical materials with the AWMP may either keep their materials after digitization, or work with the AWMP to deposit them in a museum or archives.
