The Victorian Sportswoman Visual Archive

Summary From Project Site 

“This Omeka-powered gallery makes newly accessible images of sportswomen extracted from nineteenth- century periodicals…. The fluid structure of the gallery offers several ways of interpreting the artifacts, calling a different kind of attention to themes from the dissertation. As such, it is a space for investigating how digital tools may expand the ways we read.… The act of curating reshuffles and recirculates the material from the dissertation, revealing new connections between concepts and offering different trajectories than the historical chronology of the chapters. Linking items throughout the archive draws out dynamic relationships between the iconography, textual representations, and ideologies that shaped Victorian ideas about female athleticism.”
