COBWWWEB: Connections Between Women and Writings Within European Borders
The WomenWriters database includes biographical data on more than 4.000 authors and over 22.000 references to reception data found in sources like the periodical press, early literary history and private correspondences. A significant part of the dataset was collected in the NWO digitizing project The International Reception of Women’s Writing (2004-2007), focusing on authors received in the Netherlands. A second NWO internationalising project called New approaches to European Women’s Writing (2007-2010) and the subsequent COST Action Women Writers in History (2009‐2013) brought together a large international community of scholars and used the Dutch data collection as an example for other colleagues. COBWWWEB enables a connection between the various national projects on this subject into a growing international data network. A virtual research environment on top of this network makes all material from participating data providers accessible for European and interdisciplinary research.
