A Living Archive: Using Archives to Teach Gender
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Using Archives to Teach Gender project by Dr. Maria do Mar Pereira. Funded by a University Student Education Fellowship at the University of Leeds, Gender Studies students used the M&S Company Archive and Feminist Archive North (FAM) to gather a set of resources which capture the key themes in the teaching of gender.
This online resource includes downloadable text and images to inspire and support tutors, as well as providing suggestions for further research using the archive collections on campus.
The project has been extremely well received across the University and beyond, and we’re keen to see this project inspire others to use archives and to discover the M&S archive collection!
