A Woman's Place Is in the School: Rhetorics of Gendered Space in Nineteenth-Century America
Enoch, Jessica
College English, v70 n3 p275-295 Jan 2008
Nineteenth-century American leaders in education came to advocate a redesign of the schoolroom that resulted in its being seen as more the province of female teachers than of male teachers. This discourse of reform serves as a case study of how space itself may be rhetorically "gendered." (Contains 1 figure and 9 notes.)
