Wissenschaft als weiblicher Beruf?
Die ersten Frauen in Forschung und Lehre an der Universität HeidelbergUniversitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge
The development of historical research in German universities over the last twenty years has been strongly influenced by the academic fields of cultural and social history, and by gender issues. There exist, therefore, along with individual studies and several comprehensive comparisons of doctoral and the “Habilitation” (postdoctoral lecture qualification) qualifications as “specifically German”, also studies of gender-specific opportunities for access to university education and research careers. Until now, there has been no broad investigation into the work of early women in research and teaching in the context of Heidelberg University. The aim of this volume, developed by a small group of history students, is to close this gap.
