The Feminist Institute is establishing the foremost online repository for the study of feminist documentation.
The Feminist Institute: An Introduction
We have accomplished some great things since our launch, including:
Digital capturing the contents of artist Mary Beth Edelson’s SoHo loft with 360-degree views.
Curating an online exhibition on Cindy Sherman.
Recording 360-degree views of Judith Bernstein’s Studio.
Guest-editing the March 2019 issue of The Brooklyn Rail.
Partnering with The Female Quotient on The Feminist Portfolio, an art project depicting historic feminist figures.
We’ve been working with several partners behind-the-scenes to best serve our community and to fulfill our mission.
While we develop our database, we will provide:
Tutorials on personal digital archiving best practices, from choosing the proper file formats to long-term maintenance.
Introductions to a variety of archival theories and techniques to better contextualize The Feminist Institute’s work.
Features on important projects being completed by archivists around the country, particularly those that work within feminist ethics of care or ethical digital preservation access.
Interviews with notable feminists about their archives and how they have approached their collections to this point.
Updates on our digitization projects and partners.
Pop-up digital exhibitions from our digital collections.
