Gender and Work (GaW) is a combined research and digitisation project at the Department of History at Uppsala University. The aim of the project is to increase knowledge about the work of both men and women in the past.

As part of the project we have gathered and classified thousands of fragments of information from a variety of historical sources that describe the ways people sustained and provided for themselves. This information has been stored in a unique database that has been made accessible for researchers, students, and the general public.

To learn more about us, take a look at our blog posts or access our official website. You can also keep in touch with us through Facebook Gender and Work Uppsala universitet.
