IV ARCHIVING AND DOCUMENTATION CENTRE

“Women Missionaries of the Ramakrishna Orders”: A Research and Resource Centre
The Research and Resource Centre on "The Women Missionaries of the Ramakrishna Orders" is a unique consortium of published books and periodicals, e-resources and digital and hard copies of archival materials for instance, letters, manuscripts, photographs, paintings and films.

The Centre aims to fill a gap in the history of Indian missionary work by attracting archival and academic attention to the vast field of work carried out by the women missionaries of the Ramakrishna orders in India and abroad. Compared to the critical research work existing in the corresponding fields of women missionaries, for instance for that of the Christian women missionaries or the Brahmo reformation and the women associated with it, critical research on the women missionaries of the Ramakrishna Movement has remained a comparatively less investigated area of study.
In this context, and in the context of the ever growing demand of digital archiving in every field of study today, our initiative has a two-fold focus - on building a collaborative resource center that would in turn encourage and generate academic research in the area.
The Resource Centre aims to bring together all primary and secondary work relevant to this area under a single umbrella. It aims to produce an integrated annotated catalogue of archival resource materials in the possession of other public or private institutions. On this account the Centre receives active collaboration from our mother and sister organizations like Sri Sarada Math and Sister Nivedita Girls' School.

The Research Centre is planned as an inclusive one and is not only limited to the college faculty. Outside participants are welcome to be part of the project as collaborators in building the archival contents and as researchers using its resources for academic purposes. This little-explored domain provides a rich and rewarding field of critical inquiry, that apart form religious, theological and missionary perspectives also intersects with fields such as Gender Studies, Studies in travel and travel writing, Socio-economic impact, Rural/Area studies and Visual cultures to name only a few.
