This website offers a resource database with images and descriptions of over 150 artefacts and documents that relate to gender and feminism, and belong to the collections of the Feminist Archive North and the Marks & Spencer Company Archive.
This website was designed to serve as a useful resource for lecturers and teachers who teach sessions or modules on gender and feminism, at all levels of study, and also for students working on these topics. Here you can find a range of materials that will both enhance your teaching and learning, and save you time.
- a fully searchable database of images that you can download to use in lectures, seminars, research and coursework
- practical suggestions on how to draw on these materials and on archival collections more broadly to create innovative classroom exercises, engaging assessment activities, and ideas for undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation projects
- links to other websites where you can find additional audiovisual and textual archive material relating to gender and feminism
- recordings and material from our events, including presentations and discussions on the potential and challenges of using archives to teach gender
This website is one of the outcomes of the University of Leeds Student Education Fellowship-funded project Using Archives to Teach Gender, coordinated by Maria do Mar Pereira. Working with her on the project was a team of extraordinary student research assistants: Eleanor Broadbent, Anna Colgan and Freya Potter.
If you have suggestions of links to add to our Other Useful Resources page, or teaching activities to include in the Suggestions for Teaching page, we would be delighted to receive them and add them to the website. Please send them to us using the email address above.
Do go ahead and explore the website… We hope you find plenty of useful material here!
