Legislating Women’s Citizenship and Rights

Sprint Activities and Accomplishments

For this research sprint, Zornitsa and the team traced how women emerged as an object of discussion in the U.S. Congress. The team set up a shared, organized EndNote library where Zornitsa can collect congressional and secondary sources, include the PDFs of all citations, and annotate those documents online.  They also trained Zornitsa on how to annotate collected documents using her Microsoft Surface Pro and how to use EndNote and NVivo. At the end of the Sprint, the team found and grouped roughly 2000 citations from various government document databases in EndNote.
