Launch Event: Centre for the History of Women’s Education

King Alfred’s College: 7th June 2002

“The Centre provides a forum for research into the gendered nature of educational provision, practice and thought in order to provide a sound evidence base for policy and practice in respect of education for women and girls. The Centre takes a broad cultural definition of Education: one which transcends schooling to encompass learning and teaching (formal and informal) at any phase of the life-cycle, in any setting or historical period, including the recent past.”

I presented a short paper on ‘informal education’, the representation of men/women in VD posters.
