Female education in the time of the Qajar
Aracne Edition presents Maryam Maveddat's “Female education in the time of the Qajar”.
Preface by Anna Vanzan
The volume is a revision of the doctoral thesis of the author Maryam Mavaddat and contains a catalog of important unpublished manuscripts of a didactic and, sometimes, satirical nature. Some Persian documents are analyzed, dating back to the Qâjâr period (1779–1925), with the aim of highlighting the evolution of female education influenced by Iran's relations with Europe. In this historical period, the need is felt to develop new educational methods aimed at the creation of a new society and the need for a connection between traditional values and new impulses, especially scientific ones, coming from Europe is perceived.
