Sources: starting points for research

This part of the site deals with the sources that provide information on the reception of women's writing. It presents what could be considered the starting point of research projects made possible by the database WomenWriters and serves as an example of the many possible sources one is or will be able to find in the database.

Intended public for this part of the site: researchers in the process of selecting and dealing with sources in reception history; also students seeking information about the ways in which we are proceeding, etc.

Sources are classified:
1. by country,
2. by category.
