The purpose of the Center HWPS is to show that women have influenced the development of scientific and philosophical thought in various ways throughout history. In order to ensure digital and social participation, our research areas intersect and bolster the other pillars of digital humanities: public engagement and teaching.

The overall goal of this milestone project is to complement, promote, and ease future research in the area of women in the history of philosophy.

Furthermore, the Center HWPS develops digital media and tools to assist in research in the humanities, and utilize digital platforms to enhance and transcend traditional text-based learning.

For example, the Conversations with Diotima, the (Beta-Version of our) Timeline, the Encyclopedia of Concise Concepts, as well as other media and tolls are already available on this webpage.

The Archive and Library of Women in Early Phenomenology, Online Editions on Émilie Du Châtelet, and other long-term projects are in development.
