Hidden Histories: Educating Women in Athens, GA before 1919

Alan Flurry

As UGA continues to celebrate 100 years of coeducation, the Institute for Women's Studies presents a timely and contextual discussion in their Friday Speaker Series on Feb. 1 at 12:20 in MLC 250.

This year we celebrate the centennial of UGA officially admitting women, but where did women get an education before that? Undergraduate student Kristen Gragg will talk about her research into the Lucy Cobb Institute, as well as its sometimes troubled relationship to the University of Georgia, and then University Professor of Theatre and English Fran Teague will talk about what such history tells us about both institutions and ourselves.

The presentation is free and open to the public, and FYO approved.
