THE NEW HISTORIA
Knowing is powerful and we can be more powerful than we have ever been - Gina Luria Walker
The New Historia is an initiative designed to document and promote the achievements of women in history that have gone unnoticed or unrecognized by our larger society. Led by Gina Luria Walker, a professor of Women's Studies at The New School, the initiative will use technology, including a searchable digital platform to connect today's young women with the unknown female groundbreakers of the past.
JOIN US IN OUR MISSION
The New Historia is a global scholarly network and archive that uses unique research techniques and emerging technology to unearth groundbreaking women of the past—and educate young women of the future. We need $25,000 to fund the first phase of development for an interactive digital archive.
This living digital archive will be the foundation for a comprehensive collection of women’s stories that will display each in a new way; allowing us to reframe figures in historical context, better understand fields of influence, and ultimately provide new lessons from the past to help change the future. This project brings together social scientists, historian, and interactive designers across the university. Donations support this groundbreaking work, and they are critical to reaching our goal of publishing our first 400 female biographies.
