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.

Designed for introductory research courses in the professional fields and social sciences, this text acquaints students and beginning researchers with a broad view of research methodologies and an understanding of the assumptions that inform each of these approaches. More experienced researchers will also find the book useful in acquainting them with methodologies and theoretical frameworks that are new to them. The text is distinguished by its avoidance of using the discreet categories of qualitative and quantitative methods to organize the chapters. While some chapter authors rely more on one or the other, many employ multiple methodologies to investigate particular problems and questions. Further, the book is not organized into single, contradictory positivist-interpretivist categories of research; chapter authors often situate methodologies within a variety of, and sometimes multiple, theoretical positions, particularly as these approaches are shaped by the historical context of social science research. Focus points in Foundations for Research: Methods of Inquiry in Education and the Social Sciences: *research ethics. *intertwined relationship of theory and research design. *systematic examination of ways to design and implement high-quality, trustworthy research across varying research designs. *specific methods for implementing research within various frameworks. *pedagogical strategies.

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.

What do people remember about their school experience? What do the memories of generations of ex-students have in common? What do these memories tell us about the power relations and emotions produced by the institution of school? What effect does school have on the formation of the -self-? <I>Remembering School uses a unique theoretical and methodological framework constructed from the theories of Michel Foucault and post-structural feminism to explore the collective memory of school. This book draws on a wide range of stories to explore memories of punishment, bullying, gender and race relations, and pleasure. Erica Southgate uses a clear, often witty, writing style to provide a provocative account of the enduring power relations of schooling and their lasting impact on people."
