Women and education in Britain, 1800-1920: Extending the boundaries

Location:United KingdomCall for Papers Deadline:2004-03-26 Date Submitted:2003-10-30Announcement ID:135827

Recent scholarship has considerably expanded our knowledge and understanding of the history of women’s education in Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, shedding light on movements to ‘reform’ and develop girls’ schooling and higher education and uncovering the ambiguous legacies of pioneering teachers and lecturers. This conference seeks to build on such work by approaching the theme from a variety of historical perspectives. It hopes to investigate the broader cultural, economic and political dimensions to educational reform. Proposals which consider the relationships between women’s education and politics, religion, cultural capital and economic concerns are particularly welcomed.
