Digital Humanities

Over the past two years, Afsaneh Najmabadi has developed a digital archive and website that preserves, links, and renders accessible primary source materials related to the social and cultural history of women’s worlds during the reign of the Qajar dynasty (1796 – 1925) in Iran. Over the next period, the project will be focused on is the development and launch of two new features: an interactive research platform and an interactive genealogy and geography feature. This project will also investigate what features other existing similar digital archival and collaborative research platforms have developed, and how these features could be transformed into the needs of our project.
