The Women Writers Project focuses on research from pre-Victorian women writers. Initially established in 1988, this long-term project supports research, archiving, text encoding, and various digital projects that center on women writers. The WWP is also associated with the annual “Women in the Archives” conference at Brown University.

This project is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities among other organizations. WWP supports researchers worldwide, and the project also provides access to rare materials by women that otherwise would go unread and untaught. This is just one of many inspiring digital projects that have been enabled by a widening digital-humanities environment.
