Portuguese Women Writers (16th-19th centuries)

This Project has as its main objective the mapping of Portuguese feminine textual production before 1900. It continues the research carried out during a previous project finished in 2009, during which more than 350 Portuguese women writers living and producing before 1800 have been identified.

The need to answer new issues raised by research led to adjustments in the purposes of the project which have now been extended to include:

  • the study of women’s presence in social occasions devoted to text diffusion;
  • the collection and study of data about women’s reading;
  • the collection of data allowing the study of women writers in the Portuguese Diaspora.
