The project aims to stimulate debate and research on women and Independence in Latin America by building on public interest in women's involvement in the Independence Wars, triggered by the bicentenaries, and women's unprecedented presence in Latin American politics today.
The project started as a five year AHRC-funded research project (2001-2006) with the aim of rethinking Latin American Independence in terms of gender. Now, having received further funding from the AHRC, we are in the process of transforming this website into a dynamic, interactive community-contributed and community-driven resource which will allow participants to exchange ideas and information about the Independence struggles and their contemporary relevance. We aim to stimulate debate and knowledge transfer regarding the significance of these events – and of the ideas and aspirations which they represent - to the lives of Latin American women today. The project is hosted by the Department of Hispanic and Latin American Studies at the University of Nottingham in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.
