Fictions of Female Education in the Nineteenth Century Résumé

Fictions of Female Education in the Nineteenth Century Jaime Osterman Alves (Bard College, USA)

Seeking to understand how literary texts both shaped and reflected the century's debates over adolescent female education, this book examines fictional works and historical documents featuring descriptions of girls' formal educational experiences between the 1810s and the 1890s. Alves argues that the emergence of schoolgirl culture in nineteenth-century America presented significant challenges to subsequent constructions of normative femininity. The trope of the adolescent schoolgirl was a carrier of shifting cultural anxieties about how formal education would disrupt the customary maid-wife-mother cycle and turn young females off to prevailing gender roles. By tracing the figure of the schoolgirl at crossroads between educational and other institutions - in texts written by and about girls from a variety of racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds - this book transcends the limitations of "separate spheres" inquiry and enriches our understanding of how girls negotiated complex gender roles in the nineteenth century.

Fictions of Female Education in the Nineteenth Century Avis

"Gives a range of valuable insights into the pedagogical practices used to teach women during the nineteenth century and about the psychosocial effects of these practices. This book also shows the importance of using fictionalised accounts as part of a broader analysis of the socio-historical context. The vignettes it describes and the questions it poses (particularly with respect to minority ethnic education) will be of use in teaching and research and are likely to inspire further inquiry using these methods." - Sarah Evans, Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography
