Digital Database

The digital database Knjiženstvo, Theory and History of Women’s Writing in Serbian until 1915 was established within the project of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development from the project cycle which lasted between 2011 and 2019.

The database contains information on the work of Serbian women writers from the Middle Ages to 1915. This includes basic biographical and bibliographic data, data on translations, women’s journals, ties with other women writers, both Serbian and foreign, as well as mutual influences and links leading to digitized texts. The digital database continues the tradition of de-hierarchized articles on women’s literary and artistic work, such as lists and bibliographies of women’s works, written from the end of the 19th to the end of the 20th century, emphasizing at the same time the need to constantly complement and upgrade the database, which is enabled by this medium.
