Women and Social Movements in the United States published its first two online document projects in December 1997, work that grew out of courses taught by Kathryn Kish Sklar at SUNY Binghamton. From that modest beginning the website has expanded steadily. We have published new resources quarterly since March 2004 and now in 2011 we will continue to publish document projects and archives, book and website reviews, and teaching tools twice a year. We have established an editorial board of respected scholars in U.S. Women's History who will play a major role in the peer review of prospective document projects.
We invite prospective contributors to the journal to contact us by email to discuss possible document projects. We have prepared a guide for submissions which offers suggestions for developing a document project. If you would be interested in reviewing books for the journal, contact ; for website reviews contact Melanie Shell-Weiss . For the teaching tools section of the journal, please contact the editor, Laura Westhoff , Univ. of Missouri, St. Louis
Subscriptions to the website and its journal are available for school, academic and public libraries from Alexander Street Press. Rates on a sliding scale reflect the size and budget of the library. Thirty-day free trial subscriptions are available to permit librarians and users to review the website.
We look forward to working with historians of U.S. women in the months ahead. As Women and Social Movements in the United States has expanded in the past thirteen years it has become an increasingly collaborative undertaking. To discuss various issues related to Women and Social Movements in the United States, take a look at our WASM blog available at http://wasmblog.binghamton.edu/ . We would be particularly interested to have those who are teaching with WASM resources to write up their experiences and share them with others on the blog. We hope that the website will become a valuable venue for discussion and thinking about U.S. Women's History, a resource for the teaching of U.S. Women's History, and a means of integrating women and gender into broader American History narratives. Please share with us your thoughts about the journal and join us in this effort.
