Womens Worlds in Qajar Iran: A Digital Archive and Website

The development of a comprehensive digital archive and Web site that will preserve and render accessible primary sources related to the social and cultural history of women during the Qajar dynasty (1785-1925) in Iran.

Womens Worlds in Qajar Iran: A Digital Archive and Website May 2009 to April 2011. Harvard University seeks $341,933 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop a comprehensive digital archive and website that will preserve, link, and render accessible primary source materials related to the social and cultural history of womens worlds during the reign of the Qajar dynasty, 1785 to 1925, in Iran. The Qajar dynasty is perhaps most notable for a series of intense interactions with Europe (Britain and Russia, in particular), many of which introduced cultural and political changes that still resonate in the Iran of today. The proposed archive will address a significant gap in the scholarship related to this important time in the history of Iran by making available writings and other personal documents created by, and reflecting the lives of, women during the Qajar era.
