Welcome to my website Shells and Women. 

On this site you will find a blog about Tera van Benthem Jutting, her life and her work. You can enjoy browsing through her letter archive, her diaries and her lecture notes. You can see which shells she named, which articles she wrote and which scientists she interacted with. 

I am sorry to say that for the time being her letters and diaries are only available in Dutch. In time I will provide a full English version, but for now you’ll have to make do with google translate.

Sign up! Then you will receive an email when there are new things to be found.
