CITIZEN SCIENCE CAMPAIGN: SIX WEEKS FOR SUFFRAGE, 2024 EDITION

This International Women’s Day, the Women and the F-Word team at Aix-Marseille Université is launching its fourth “Six Weeks for Suffrage” citizen science campaign! Between the 8th of March and 12th of April, we are inviting anyone interested to come help us fill in our Map of Memorials to the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Thanks to your help, we’ve already managed to geolocate over one hundred sites across the globe. There are many, many more – we hope you’ll help us find them!

We will be updating the map weekly: follow our progress on Instagram.

And please spread the word widely!

Sites and Agents of Feminist Memory: Business Meetings at the IMERA (22/11)

The Institute for Advanced Studies of Aix-Marseille Université (IMERA), where Marc Calvini-Lefebvre was on research leave last term, welcomes our team for two business meetings pertaining to our citizen-science project on Sites and Agents of Feminist Memory (SCIFEM).

In the first meeting, Professor Sarah Richardson (Univeristy of Glasgow ) and Dr Tara Morton (University of Warwick), creators of the citizen-science digital mapping project Mapping Women’s Suffrage 1911 will share their advice on best practice relating to citizen-science projects.

In the second meeting,  the progress that has been made to date on the SCIFEM project will be presented to its International Advisory Board for comment and strategic advice.

Our thanks to the IMERA for hosting the event and inviting Professor Richardson and Dr Morton to Marseilles!

The Women and the F-word team are capping off the academic year with a roundtable discussion about digital mapping between Lucy Delap (University of Cambridge), Sarah Richardson (University of Warwick) and Marc Calvini-Lefebvre (AMU).  Lucy, Sarah and Marc are respectively involved with the following projects mapping feminist history:

To hear about their projects and listen to their exchange, please join us in room 2.44 of the Maison de la Recherche on Aix-Marseille University’s Schuman Campus between 4:30 and 6:30 PM (Paris time) on Thursday 30 June 2022.

The forum can also be followed on zoom. Please email feministmemory@gmail.com to receive the link.

Six Weeks for suffrage: thank you to all contributors

The Women and the F-Word team’s Six Weeks for Suffrage campaign came to an end this week. We are pleased to report that our Map of Memorials to the Women’s Suffrage Movement, which had roughly 30 entries at the start of the academic year, now has more than 60. 
 
This result would not have been possible without the suggestions we received from contributors around the world. So our most heartfelt thanks to Salomé André, Tanya Bailey, Amélie Bardivia, Karine Bigand, Samantha Borry, Melanie Goan, Florence Kaczorowski, Vera Mackie, Katey Watson and Monica Webb for your brilliant contributions to this project (some of which we are still working through – so watch this space!).
 
Though this year’s Six Weeks for Suffrage campaign has ended, our work does not – so please continue sending us your suggestions and spread the word to anyone who may be interested!
 
A reminder of how to follow and get in touch:
 
With best wishes,
 
Marc Calvini-Lefebvre & Alice Foulquier
