Summary This edited collection illustrates how women's lived experiences in academe could be diverse but in some ways historically and culturally similar. It looks at both the micro-level (individual women) and macro-level (universities and higher education systems) within community, regional, national, transnational, and international contexts. The contributors integrally advance knowledge about the university in history by exploring the intersections of the lived experiences of women students and professors, practices of coeducation, and intellectual and academic cultures. Important questions are raised about the complementary and multidirectional flow and exchange of academic knowledge and information among gender groups across programs, disciplines, and universities. Critical historical inquiry and interpretation effectively promote understandings of contemporary events and discourses in higher education, and more broadly in community and society. This book provides important historical contexts for current debates about the impact and significance of women in higher education, and the tensions embedded in the gendering of specific academic programs and disciplines, and in university policies, missions, and mandates
