Women Writers Online (1400-1850)

The Women Writers Project is a long-term research project from Brown University, which is transferring to Northeastern. It is devoted to early modern women's writing and electronic text encoding. Women Writers Online is a collection that provides full text access to over 300 works written in English by women in the pre-Victorian period. These texts include political, philosophical, and scientific writings as well as religious material, poetry, drama, fiction, and a huge variety of texts that don't fit into specific categories.
