Collecting Ego-Documents and Democratisation

Autor(en)
Li Gerhalter
Abstrakt

Women’s History and Gender History pursue an essentially socio-political demand. This aspect shall be illustrated in this article by using the example of collections, which archive ego-documents such as diaries, letter exchanges, or photo albums. The author explains the connection to “public history” and suggests that those who donate ego-documents to archives should be called “citizen scientists”.
