Mon, 2021-04-26 09:09

La question des archives du livre a suscité, au cours des dernières années, plusieurs colloques et projets de recherche. Les chercheures et chercheurs qui s’y sont confrontés n’ont pu que constater la présence évanescente et feutrée des femmes et de leurs trajectoires au sein de ces masses de documents.
