Final conference COST Action “Women Writers In History” 19-21 June 2013

at Huygens ING The Hague, Tesselschade room.

About 50 Action members will present outcomes of collaborative research, and projects for further cooperation, in which Digital Humanities play an important part.

Please find here the link to the program: <http://www.womenwriters.nl/index.php/European_Female_Authorship:_Networks_and_Obstacles>.

Within limitations related to the possibilities of the room, colleagues, students and others interested are invited to attend the conference (please inform the organizers).

You will notice that on this occasion there will be several related – non-digital – activities:

1.     The Museum of Dutch Literary History will present a number of additional Dutch women authors in its “Writers’ Gallery”;

2.     The Royal Library will show a (small) number of its (large) collection of 19th- and 20th-century women’s books (either originally Dutch or translated into Dutch);

3.     The National Archives contribute some of the recently re-discovered manuscripts of Belle de Zuylen/Isabelle de Charrière (which are in the process of being digitized and made available online).

At the end of the last day, three Utrecht musicians will present a performance based on Belle van Zuylen/Isabelle de Charrière’s correspondence with James Boswell (correspondence which in the process of being digitized and made available on-line at Huygens ING).

All those interested are invited to join us (please notify the organisers if you intend to attend).

We plan to have an interesting and fruitful conference, closing this Action which for all the Action members has been and continues to be an important and enriching experience – which we are happy to be able to continue during the upcoming years.
