Published by Publisher ♜♜ This collection brings together the work of scholars exploring the history of women in education in a number of different national settings. Published by Publisher ♜♜ The contributors include both established scholars who have completed major studies & younger scholars exploring new directions. Published by Publisher ♜♜ All of these scholars share an engagement in reflection on the process of history writing & consider the impact of recent theoretical debates on their own scholarship. Published by Publisher ♜♜ Their work reflects the influence of feminist theory & poststructuralism, but also of postcolonial theory & theories of the educational state. Published by Publisher ♜♜ In these essays, writers address such key issues as the nature of historical evidence, the continuing need to uncover the ‘hidden histories’ of women as teachers, the ways life history narratives can illuminate women’s own conceptions of themselves as women & teachers, the material conditions of teaching as work for women, & the way conceptions of gender have shaped women’s experiences in relation to the educational state, the family, class, sexuality & race. Published by Publisher ♜♜ These feminist writers also explore the ways they are implicated in the very subject of their research – the educated woman who is also an educator.
