The history of the autonomous Women*Lesbian Department of the RUB becomes a part of the Digital German Women Archive (DDF)

The DDF-Project of "Lieselle":

Processing of the (student) autonomous »women and lesbian movement (s)« in the Ruhr area ”using the example of the RUB's Autonomous Women * Lesbian Department

  • Project duration: September 2017 to December 2018
  • Responsible: Dr. Muriel González Athenas

Since the founding at the end of January 1979, numerous materials have accumulated, from leaflets, minutes, information brochures, event flyers, theoretical contributions and conference reports to "Spuckis" and a few posters. We sift through all the materials, organize and systematize them and record them for online research and the DDF's META database. Selected documents and gray literature are digitized and a chronicle of the most important »stations« and events in the history of the unit is created.

General information on the project content:

With the help of external funded project, important documents from the previously untapped documentation of the Autonomous Women * Lesbian Department of the Ruhr University Bochum are viewed and made accessible to the public with the help of various media forms.
On the one hand, the documents are indexed in a database and the metadata within the META catalog are usually (http://www.meta-katalog.eu/) made searchable for the public. In addition, legally clarified digital copies are imported into the META catalog and the DDF portal.
The »processing« takes place in the form of a scientific text contribution (essay) on the topic of "Autonomous» Women and Lesbian Movement (s) «in the Ruhr Area" as well as through interviews with contemporary witnesses. At the end of the project, a performance will be shown and filmed, which was developed on the basis of the archive material in the preliminary stages of the presentation.

Information on the DDF:

The DDF is an internet portal on the women's and lesbian movement in Germany, through which the holdings of all German-speaking lesbian / women's archives, libraries and documentation centers can be accessed centrally and relevant specialist information on individual topics, actors, periods of time and events can be accessed directly .
It presents - unique in the German-speaking area - for the first time bundled digital copies, inventory data and further information on the history of the women's movement in the form of a specialist portal. The aim is to reflect the diverse points of view of the women's movements as completely as possible. Historical and current socio-political issues are prepared, linked and presented online: https://www.digitales-deutsches-frauenarchiv.de/
