Our mission is to collect, transcribe, edit, translate, and share literary texts by and information about women writers who lived on the Iberian Peninsula from the Middle Ages through the nineteenth century.
The More than Muses project aims to incorporate mentored research into undergraduate education. In doing so, students acquire proficiency in library research, document collection, editing, analytical writing as well as expanding their subject knowledge.
In doing this, More than Muses preserves a number of Iberian creative works which might otherwise be lost, making them easily available from a single source, at no cost to users.
- Bring undergraduates into active participation in significant research as they work with faculty mentors
- Maintain the More than Muses database as a cost-free source of texts and resources
- Assist students and scholars of women’s work
- Foster the establishment of similar projects in other fields
