Girls’ Secondary Education in the Western World: From the 18th to the 20th Centuries (co-edited with Rebecca Rogers and James Albisetti) has a dual aim. It looks at how specific national political and cultural contexts shaped the emergence of girls’ schools in Great Britain and Ireland, France, Germany and Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Belgium, Scandinavia, Bulgaria and Southeastern Europe. It also includes chapters on how from the outset foreign ideas and teachers and transatlantic exchanges marked the debates and institutional relations different countries about what girls’ secondary schooling should be.
