This is a project that asks Who Keeps the Past and What are the Complexities Presented in Viewing Gender in Pastkeeping?  How have women and men figured differently in the process of keeping private and public papers?  How does gender influence the type of record created, the type of history available and accessible? Do women or men predominate among institutional and family memory keepers?  These are some of the questions we would like you to help us answer.  This blog, at first, should show examples, provide statistics, and allow us to read how gender in the archives is being explored today.
