European research project QUING (Quality in Gender + Equality Politics): FRAGEN | FRAmes on GENder / Atria. Institute on gender equality and women’s history (Web)
FRAGEN was released in 2013. It brougth together core feminist texts from the second wave of feminism in Europe for the first time. The texts have been made available – digitised and full text – to researchers in an easily accessible online database. In autumn 2018 the site was relaunched and now appears with a new interface.
The FRAGEN-database has two goals:
- to create a database of the original texts on gender+equality frames that have emerged from feminist movements in Europe.
- to organize and facilitate open access for researchers to this database.
The FRAGEN project brings together books, articles and pamphlets that were influential in the development of feminist ideas during the second half of the 20th century. The aim of the project is to facilitate comparative research into the history of feminist thinking in 27 EU countries, plus Croatia and Turkey.
29 Countries, 29 partners select the feminist texts: From 2008 until 2010 European women’s libraries, genderstudies departments and scholars from all over Europe have been working together in the FRAGEN project. The selection for Austria was made by Erna M. Appelt, Hanna Hacker, Margit Hauser, and Lisbeth N. Trallori.
FRAGEN is part of the European research project QUING (Quality in Gender + Equality Politics), FP6 Integrated project 2006-2011. It was announced at the time of publication that the project might be continued. (Web)
