Research Project

The Entrance of Female Faculty at the University of Florida

My university scholars project will examine the entrance of female faculty at the University of Florida, and how the university has slowly acknowledged and accepted this history. It will focus on the University of Florida from 1940 to the 1970s, and take time to acknowledge female educators who never received formal recognition by the University. I hope to frame this project in the broader framework of women in academia in the 20th Century and the treatment they experienced. Despite the University of Florida being an oddly specific case study to examine this issue, it serves as a great microcosm to examine the problems in academia across the nation, especially in the South.
