November is a busy month for Stephanie and Nancy. They will be presenting separate papers at the annual UK History of Education Society’s annual conference, both drawing on materials related to this project.
Stephanie’s paper is entitled “‘If you want to get ahead get a hat’: Learning to dress for success. Nancy will present a paper called “Engaging the Senses: Co-ed Magazine as a Source of Informal Education.” Both papers will consider sources that provided instruction to teenage girls about fashion and appearance, as well as feminine conduct.
Three days later, the team pair up to offer “The Teen Fictions Project: An Introduction” to members of the Winchester Women Graduates, a branch of the British Federation of Women Graduates and members of the University of Winchester community. The talk is hosted by the Centre for the History of Women’s Education at Winchester.
