Digital Humanities Initiative

Alexander Street Press and the editors of the Women and Social Movements in the United States, the premier online archive of U.S. women's history, are pleased to announce a new digital history initiative.

Founded in 1997 by Kathryn Kish Sklar and Thomas Dublin, Women and Social Movements in the United States played a pioneering role in moving women's history online. Continuing that legacy into the twenty-first century, Women and Social Movements in the United States will begin to publish articles that use digital methodologies to produce new historical interpretations of women in social movements in the United States.

Beginning in Fall 2015 scholars at institutions with subscriptions to Women and Social Movements in the United States or Women and Social Movements, International will be able to request downloadable, machine-readable versions of full-text sources in the databases, as well as the selected metadata provided by Alexander Street Press. To encourage the use of these full-text sources and their analysis with digital humanities techniques, we invite submissions of scholarly articles employing digital humanities techniques with WASM primary sources and will review such submissions in our double-blind peer-review process. We will publish accepted articles along with our regular document projects and archives. Authors of published articles will receive an honorarium of $500 upon publication.

Professor Michelle Moravec will serve as Digital Humanities editor and with the journal's editors will review requests for digitized sources and submissions of articles. Interested scholars should send email to with initial proposals, including an indication of the full-text sources desired in digital format.
