She Knows: Using the Brandeis Feminist Collection Archives to Explore the History of Israeli Feminism

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

Dr. Orly Nathan of The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology will undertake an archival research case study, which has evolved from the work on “She Knows,” Israel’s Gender Knowledge Center and Isha L’Isha during her residency at HBI. The first aim is to expand the range of the thesaurus terms by tracing the evolution and transformation of terms expressed by Marcia Freedman and used in feminist and gender research and practice. The case study will attempt to propose in-depth cataloguing of a sample of collection documents using the thesaurus, integrated with the existing LCSH- Library of Congress Subject Headings.
