Women Writers In History, home

Welcome to the site of COST Action IS0901 Women Writers In History: Toward a New Understanding of European Literary Culture (2009-2013). Thanks to this COST Action the NEWW network (New approaches to European Women's Writing) is expanding and developing. For this network, research of its members and events organised, please see: www.womenwriters.nl. The present Action site addresses members of the COST Action, who can post messages, discuss articles, upload and download files and read about the Action. See also the COST website.

For information about this Action, see: "Action Definition".

Concerning the use of this website: it is divided into four parts, so each of the Working Groups have their own space. First objective is to provide information. Second to allow exchange and discussion between Action members. For the moment the number of active participants is still limited to 50, which means that passwords have been distributed to all Working Group leaders, to all Members of the Management Committee (2 per country) and to the members of WG 4 (Dissemination). Other Action members are kindly asked to take contact with one of those as mediators for their messages.
