About the Journal

The Women Writers' Archive examines the intersections between women's literary texts and the literary archive, and the moments that elucidate the former by discoveries in the latter. The scholarship in this journal advances theories related to women's writing, feminism, archives, and affect, and engages with questions related to sex, gender, sexuality, and race. The editor of the journal is Linda Morra and the technical manager is Kate Shuttleworth.

This first issue of Women Writers' Archives focuses specifically on women writers in Canada and their archival caches at Simon Fraser University Rare Books and Special Collections. Developed from a graduate course held at Simon Fraser University, the contributions examine a range of issues, interrogating the contents of archives and how we might refashion our understanding of the women writers who are framed by archival content.
