The donation of Naomi
Schor's papers in 2002 laid the foundation for
the Feminist Theory Papers, which were expanded in 2004 with
the donation of the Elaine
The newest collection within the Christine
Dunlap Farnham Archives, the Feminist Theory Papers was conceived
as a resource for researchers of feminist scholarship and its recent
history, bringing together the unpublished papers of important
feminist theorists in the US and abroad. The collection offers a
rare perspective on the rigorous interdisciplinary and international
work that brought feminism to the vanguard of research in the human
sciences. The Pembroke Center’s role over the past two decades as a center dedicated
to feminist theory makes it particularly suited to conserve the legacy
of late-twentieth-century feminists, many of whom are already represented
in Pembroke Center records as participants in the Center’s
various research activities or as authors in the pages of differences:
A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies.
The Pembroke Center is actively expanding the Feminist Theory Papers
collection, which is housed at the John
Hay Library. The Schor Papers and the Marks Papers are currently
being processed and will be available to researchers in Fall 2005.
