Formal title:
Elaine Hedges papers
Extent:
19.5 linear feet
Date range:
1958-1998 (bulk, 1970-1997)
Abstract:
A wide array of materials, including correspondence, bibliographies, research, manuscripts, ephemera, photographs, and printed materials, the bulk of which dates from the early 1970s to the late 1990s, from the papers of Elaine Ryan Hedges, who was a stellar educator and scholar in the field of women’s studies. It thoroughly documents Hedges pioneering contributions to the body of feminist literary criticism--especially her groundbreaking contribution to the study of Charlotte Perkins Gilman--and her advocacy of curriculum reform and of a more inclusive canon of American literature so as to incorporate works by women, ethnic minorities, and the gay and lesbian community. This collection highlights Hedges’ research into the history of 19th century women and their needlework. Her detailed and innovative study of quilts as encoded texts brought to the fore important historical information about women and their social, political and artistic endeavors that had previously been overlooked by mainstream scholars.
