Between East and West: Sappho Leontias (1830-1900) and Her Educational Theory
Dalakoura, Katerina
Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, v51 n3 p298-318 2015
The paper presents one of the most prominent Greek women teachers and educators of the nineteenth century, and a leading figure of Greek women's education in Ottoman territory, Sappho Leontias (1830-1900). Within a transnational framework and based on the study of the writings of Sappho Leontias, the paper presents her educational views, theory and philosophy and focuses on her connections to educational thought and activity "beyond ethnic/national borders", investigating the influences on her theoretical schema. A secondary intention of the paper is to present the influence Leontias exercised on the education of her times through an overview of her educational activity. The historical and social conditions of the time and place, as well as gender ideologies, are taken into consideration; the paper supports the position that they affect or shape individual projects and choices to a great extent.
