Louise Joy and Jessica Lim publish Women’s Literary Education, 1690–1850 (Edinburgh University Press), an edited volume containing essays by English faculty colleagues including Jennifer Wallace, Rebecca Anne Barr and Jonathan Padley. The book brings together leading critical voices from a range of disciplines to examine the complex and significant ways in which female literary artists interrogated and advanced educational philosophy and practice. It assesses women’s literary contributions to the period’s strands of educational thought, enabling us to better understand how authors and readers of the period envisaged that literary texts might fulfil, fail, or refuse to fulfil, educational functions.
