She Thought It | Video Introduction

She Thought It: Crossing Bodies in Sciences and Arts is a new database comprised of texts about women. It has two main purposes: to cover, recover and discover women and their contributions to both the sciences and the arts; and to address issues of gender and power while providing a public archive with the names of women whose work has significantly marked the history of the sciences, the arts, music and literature.

This project is being conducted by the Intersexualities research group and it is an offshoot of the core project “Literature and the Frontiers of Knowledge: Politics of Inclusion” of the Margarida Losa Comparative Literature Institute of the University of Porto.
