Sophie’s PhD project addresses the educationalization of the woman question during the late 19th century in Paris, Berlin, and Stockholm comparatively. The thesis will examine the struggle for the image and consequently the field of action of bourgeois women as it was carried out in the arena of education. Special focus will be put on the power of state statistics as a mechanism of (implicitly) constituting social reality – rather than merely describing it.
