Margaret Nash, Women’s Education in the United States, 1780-1840

Margaret Nash
Margaret Nash is a professor in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Riverside. Professor Nash specializes in the history of education, the history of curriculum and gender and education. She will speak on her groundbreaking book Women’s Education in the United States, 1780-1840. The 2005 recipient of the Critics Choice Book Award of the American Educational Studies Association, the book examines the underlying rationale for educating women (“Is Not Woman a Human Being?”)   In this history of the institutions that were the forerunners of the women’s college movement, Professor Nash considers the social, economic, and political forces that led to the admission of women to universities—a privilege taken for granted by most young women today.
