Abstract

Teaching with Memories discusses the ways in which one can use the assignment to write the life story of a "foremother" as an educational tool. This book includes descriptions of good practice, short articles about the analysis of specific sources, annotated bibliographies, and a wealth of examples of assignments and questions that will help teachers within or outside institutions of higher education to work with this format. The book offers reflections on the way women's historians can connect research on women's memory with teaching in different European contexts.
