Did you know that the Graduate School at Yale was coeducational from its official inception in 1892? Women earned one-third of doctorates in the first class of PhDs in 1894, and went on to highly accomplished careers in academia and civic life, influencing later generations of students. WFF Associates Ruth Vaughan and Liena Vayzman will present a talk on their research, which brings to light the scholarship and biographies of these women. Cosponsored by the Yale Women Faculty Forum, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. RSVP to wff@yale.edu
