Women's Educational Worlds: Hidden Histories, Morven Museum & Garden

Thursday July 25, 2024
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

You're invited to an illustrated talk with historian and author Lucia McMahon exploring the "hidden histories" of women's educational worlds in early America.

Writing in 1793, Judith Sargent Murray wished "to congratulate my fair country-women, on the happy revolution which the few past years has made in their favour." This "happy revolution" was not the American Revolution itself but rather the related developments that gave women access "to studies of a more elevated and elevating nature."

Long before colleges officially opened their doors to them, women in early national America benefited from access to an expanding array of schools, academies, and institutes. Recent research has helped recover the educational journeys and intellectual aspirations of women from this era. Professor McMahon's most recent book, "The Celebrated Elizabeth Smith," will be available for purchase and signing immediately following the talk.

This event is in-person or online via Zoom. Preregistration is requested for planning purposes and to receive the Zoom link.
