This searchable bibliographic database contains records describing over 5,000 works on "feminist theory, feminist literary criticism and gender studies focusing on English and American literature" from 1950 to the present. The search form is available under the heading Research, where users may indicate which field to search, limit by year of publication, and specify whether to return results in English or German. Works included in the database have been assigned up to 20 keywords from a locally-developed thesaurus for feminist research. A German version of the thesaurus is available in the Deutsche (German) Version and work is underway to translate the thesaurus into English. Work on this database was started in 1987 by Professor Natasha Wurzbach of the University of Cologne (Germany) English Department, and was made accessible via the Internet through a cooperative project with the Department of Art and Design at the Fachhochschule Koln.
