M.A.P. (Mulheres na América Portuguesa) – ‘Women in Portuguese America: Mapping the writings of women and about women in the Portuguese Atlantic space using Digital Humanities methods‘ is a research project at the University of São Paulo, Brazil.

We are currently building a catalog of documents written by women and documents written about women (containing their ‘speech’ in the form of reported discourse) in Portuguese America (1500-1822).

With the catalog, we aim to systematize and make visible for future research a set of immensely important documentary sources for philological studies and for studies of the history of language, social history, the history of writing and reading, and the history of women in Brazil.

The current catalog and the project’s main documentation are available at our main research site at USP, http://map.prp.usp.br – in Portuguese only, for the moment.
