Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested,' Francis Bacon wrote in one of his famous essays. At the very least, Margaret A. Nash's study of women and American higher education should be savored, since Women's Education in the United States, 1780-1840 is an intellectual treat. Long before colleges and universities admitted women, a growing variety of academies, institutes, and seminaries opened the higher learning to a small but significant cohort of white middle class students. Nash's elegant book brings to life the social, economic, and political forces that shaped these institutions during their formative decades. And she uncovers the diverse impulses, including the sheer love of learning, that drove women to seek advanced studies. Scholars who think they understand the story of women and higher education in its earliest manifestations are in for a surprise. Nash has set a new standard in her field. - William J. Reese, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.The Origins of Womens Higher Education in America examines female education in the United States from the early national period through the formation of the institutions that are widely recognized as the forerunners of the womens college movement. Margaret A. Nash argues that in this period education was not as strongly gendered as other historians have posited. The rising rhetoric of human rights, Enlightenment thought, and evangelical Christianity, in an age of dynamic economic change, helped build a broad ideological base for the spread of female education. Education was key to the project of class formation, and therefore, Nash contends, class and race were more salient than gender in the construction of educational institutions.
