About the workshop

Women made many valuable contributions to education in the long 18th century including working as teachers, governesses and instructing their younger siblings. Key components of their education included the arts, particularly but not limited to music.

The Women and Education in the Long 18th Century (WELEC) workshop aims to bring together historians, artists, musicians and anyone interested in this broad but important subject.
