Established in 2003 with the papers of the late Naomi Schor, the Feminist Theory Archive documents the work of influential scholars who have transformed the  landscape of higher education through their writing, teaching, institution building, and activism. By establishing academic programs and institutes, organizing innovative conferences and publications, and introducing questions about women and gender to a range of disciplines throughout the humanities and social sciences, these thinkers have transformed and diversified the very meaning of “feminist” research. The Feminist Theory Archive gathers, catalogs, and preserves evidence of this groundbreaking work in order to make it accessible to future scholars and students at the John Hay Library
