Students and researchers are welcome to consult Atria’s unique collection and to visit the nice and quiet library in the center of Amsterdam. Are you a student and do you want to know more about gender equality, feminism and diversity? Or are you a teacher and would you like your pupils to develop a gender sensitive approach? Then Atria is the place to be!
To get acquainted with Atria, students and teachers can subscribe for the free Student Tour on Monday September 24 or on Thursday October 18, from 5 to 6 p.m.
One of Atria's librarians will guide you through the library and archive and highlight some special items in Atria's collection that tell untold stories and offer new perspectives. You will get to know more about Atria’s activities and what Atria can offer you as a student or teacher.
During the Student Tour (English spoken) you will learn about the history of women's emancipation in the Netherlands, with a focus on the position of women in education and science. Who was the first female student in the Netherlands? Or the first professor? Who are the women that advanced the right to education for girls and women and the possibility for achieving their full potential in society? And how did women organise themselves in student life?
Until the end of November students can make use of a discount offer: an annual library membership for € 15,00 instead of € 22,50.
