This A-Z reference work provides the first comprehensive reference guide to the wide range of historical writing with which women have been involved, particularly since the Renaissance. The Companion covers biographical writing, travelogue and historical fictions, broadening the concept of history to include the forms of writing with which women have historically engaged. The focus is on women writing in English internationally, but historical and historiographical traditions from beyond the English-speaking world are also examined. Brief biographies of individual writers are included.

* What is historical research in education? * How can researchers get started in this area? * Why does this field offer a common project for historians, educationists, and researchers across the social sciences? This book explores how to set about historical research in education. The first general guide of its kind for fifty years, the book locates this field in relation to changes in educational research, historical research, and a wide range of social sciences. It offers a theoretical guide to the rationales and problems of the field as well as to current opportunities for research. It also gives practical advice for getting started and for suitable research methods in different kinds of projects, and in doing so draws critically on extensive international literature. It includes detailed case studies on the following topics in historical research: Curriculum and Classrooms, Foucauldian Interpretations, the 'Alternative Road', Literacy in the Nineteenth Century, and the University History Curriculum.

University of Waikato, New Zealand; Tufts University, USA. This collection brings together the work of scholars exploring the history of women in education in a number of different national settings. The contributors include both established scholars who have completed major studies & younger scholars exploring new directions. 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. Their work reflects the influence of feminist theory & poststructuralism, but also of postcolonial theory & theories of the educational state. 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. 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. Contents: Part one: Introduction - Part two: Reflections on theory & historical truth - Teachers, memory & oral history - Woman/teacher/historian: a central Canadian perspective on writing the history of women teachers - Reflections on writing a history of women teachers - Reading the lives of women teachers: multiple data sources, interdisciplinary analysis - 'Being with Maori women': whose story is it? - Part three: Women teachers' life history narratives, class, race, & sexuality - Pathways & subjectivities of women teachers through life history - Disciplining the teaching body 1968-78 : progressive education & feminism in New Zealand - Where Haley stood: Margaret Haley, teachers' work & the problem of teacher identity - 'We're not what you thought' Southern African American female school teachers 1884-1954 - School desegregation & white women teachers - Sexuality, marriage & women teachers 1900-1939 - Index.
