A Serious Endeavour by Laura Schwartz

On one level, A Serious Endeavour is a concise and highly readable account of the eventful and sometimes turbulent history of St Hugh’s up to the present day. It is also much more than that. Wide-ranging and incisive, this powerful study examines how women’s wider has been continually redefined throughout the college’s lifetime, and what concepts of ‘male’ and ‘female’ can mean in an educational context, as well as squarely confronting issues of class in the developing relationship between the College and its servants.

Dr Laura Schwartz was a Career Development Fellow in History at St Hugh’s College. Her research interests are gender and radicalism in modern Britain.
