This is a press release from the History to Herstory project from Huddersfield University (http://historytoherstory.hud.ac.uk). I've popped it on my blog, because I think it's an interesting site and worth checking out. Hope you'll take a look!
'The History to Herstory Project team would really appreciate your help in evaluating our new website, its learning resources and image catalogue.
The History to Herstory project celebrates Yorkshire women's lives from 1100 to the present day. The website contains a catalogue of archive documents and images, giving direct access to primary source material of photographs, letters, diaries and medical case-notes.
You can search on a wide range of themes covering Yorkshire women's history including: work, politics, correspondence, mental health, groups and associations, diaries, and war. The website contains documents and information relating to prominent Yorkshire women, such as the Brontes, Amy Johnson, Anne Lister and Lady Amabelle Yorke and also casebooks from the Wakefield Pauper Lunatic Asylum.
You can download free learning resources on the website, that may help your students to engage with the primary sources, and be a springboard for further research. Please take a look at the new version of the website here: http://historytoherstory.hud.ac.uk
We would really appreciate your feedback on the new and improved website. There are 10 very quick questions, the majority are multiple choice where you simply need to tick a box, and not all of the questions may be relevant to you. The survey should take no more than 3 minutes of your time -- but would be enormously helpful for us to evaluate the website and to continue to improve it.
To access the questionnaire, please click on the below link:
The questionnaire will be available online until Thursday 29th September.
Thank you for your time,
The History to Herstory Project Team'
