Research Clearinghouse and Curriculum Integration Project on Women of Color and Southern Women.
Cannon, Lynn Weber
A clearinghouse and curriculum project at Memphis State University is described in this report. Aimed to facilitate the integration of women of color and Southern women into the college curriculum, this program was designed to increase access to the new scholarship on these groups; to work with faculty to develop a new vision of the curriculum; and to devise techniques to shape classroom dynamics to facilitate learning. The program involved the following activities: (1) development of a research clearinghouse, including an online database of bibliographic citations on the latest social science research on women of color and Southern women and a newsletter; (2) workshops for faculty and students on curriculum change (reaching about 150 faculty locally and nationally); and (3) seminars (monthly, for faculty, to discuss issues of content and pedagogy). Results of the program are discussed in terms of publications, curricula developed, presentations and workshops. Appended are research clearinghouse documentation; a bibliography ("Women of Color and Southern Women: A Bibliography of Social Science Research, 1975-1988"); selected bibliographies and curriculum publications; sample newsletters; and electronic bulletin board documentation.
