The Flora Stone Mather Center for Women will host a Research Salon with Miriam Levin, the Henry Eldridge Bourne Professor Emerita of History, Thursday, Nov. 4, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Suite 248.

Levin’s talk will begin by briefly discussing two topics that hover in the minds of historians as they conduct research and then focus on her current book project, which centers on how women’s access to education has become one touchstone of democracy across the globe.

Levin’s book challenges historians’ narratives focused on missionaries educating women for homemaking and family, perpetuating the American ideology of domesticity. Most centrally, it places individual monographs on foreign women’s colleges within the context of mission boards’ agendas for higher education abroad led by men as a means to implant a Protestant version of the American culture of progress.

Register to attend Levin’s talk.

Light desserts and coffee will be provided.

All salons are arranged and generously sponsored by the Community Advisory Board of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women at Case Western Reserve University.
