Polenghi, Simonetta – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Italy opened the doors of its universities to female students in 1875. The general view was that very few women were clever enough to obtain a degree, so they would not threaten social stability. Female professors would be even rarer -- a few exceptional "male" women. Access to the professions was impossible in the case of the legal…

Sartorius, Kelly C. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Historians of education have argued that the field of vocational guidance was founded by men in Boston in 1909, and that these guidance practices were not used in a college setting until the mid-1940s after the close of World War II.

Hasan, Md. Mahmudul – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018

Ogren, Christine A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Histories of teachers' experiences in the United States between the 1880s and the 1930s argue that teaching restrained and often debilitated teachers' bodies. The emerging theory of constraint is limited, however, because the historiography of American teachers focuses for the most part only on the months when school was in session. This…
