Project Details


WINK is an ERC-StG funded project (2019-2024) that researches the neglected written production of women in early European modernity in order to modify the single-gender paradigm of intellectual value. The project surveys sources in several European languages through a methodology based on trans-genre writing rather than on close genre types, allowing patterns of persuasive argumentation to emerge as intellectual input.

Approaching intellectual value as a category of gender analysis, WINK exposes the rhetorical models that have impinged on the social and cognitive processes identifying intellectual value as being androcentric, bringing to light transformative thinking from understudied and underrepresented women authors.
