The Alberta Women’s Memory Project is a collaborative project between scholars, archivists, writers and researchers who are committed to preserving the history of women in Alberta.
This website has four objectives:
- To be a comprehensive online resource in Alberta women’s history.
- To promote and facilitate the donation of new women’s collections to public archives.
- To assist website visitors with their questions about Alberta women’s history.
- To digitize and publish new resources about western Canadian women’s history with an emphasis on the stories and sources about women who lived in Alberta.
The Alberta Women’s Memory Project recognizes that who and what is remembered depends on the materials that are preserved and available to researchers. Whether you are a student researching your first history project, someone interested in finding out more about your mother or grandmother, part of a local history project, a teacher or scholar, the work begins with archives.
We invite you to use our website to help to gather the information you need. Contact us if you would like to know more about collecting and preserving family or organizational papers and photos, if you have a memoir or collection we might publish, or to share your experiences of researching and writing about women in Alberta.
The Alberta Women’s Memory Project wishes to thank the Alberta Minister of Community Development and the Heritage Preservation Partnership Programme for their generous support.
We are hosted by Athabasca University, Canada’s Open University.
