How Women Become the Subject: The Transformation of a University Curriculum.
This study analyzes catalog descriptions from a large state university in ten-year increments from 1965 to 1995 to look for evidence of a transformation of colleges and universities as a result of the introduction of women as a subject in the curriculum. Feminist scholars in the 1980s predicted the transformation would occur gradually and theorized a process called feminist phase/stage theory. The paper concludes that the curriculum at this institution under study has experienced both a quantitative and a qualitative transformation that follows the spirit of the predicted process. Contains two tables and an appendix. (EH)
