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The volume is a revision of the doctoral thesis of the author Maryam Mavaddat and contains a catalog of important unpublished didactic and sometimes satirical manuscripts.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