Silent Scholarship Speaking: Uncovering the Lives and Research of Women International Students
Women have been coming to the United States to enroll in American institutions of higher education for well over a century, but most have left little impression on American society or its documented education history. The contributions of women have, however, often been very significant in their home countries. In order to begin to explore the actual contributions of women international students in their countries of origin, it is important to be able to find reliable and comprehensive information about these women. There is no readily accessible way to research this topic, so this pilot project will explore the feasibility of developing and method for easily finding information about early women international students. This pilot project, currently titled Silent Scholarship Speaking: Uncovering the Lives and Research of Women International Students (3-S), is intended to make scholarship into women’s role in higher education more effective by also shining light on an area of the U.S. higher education research that has been mostly overlooked, that of the stories of the women international students who travelled up to halfway around the world in order to learn.
