Learning to Be New Women: Campus Culture at the North Carolina Normal and Industrial College


Author(s):
Abstract:
A look at the idea of the \"New Woman\" for the New South that developed at the North Carolina Normal and Industrial College for white women after its establishment in 1892. The college's mission was to train teachers for public schools with a goal of propagating the values and skills that southerners needed to move from the rural, agricultural world of the Old South to the Urban, entrepreneurial, industrial world of the New South. Through this, a new model of womanhood developed that would not only shape and be shaped by a changed collegiate culture, but one that would also sanction women's invasion of the public sphere.
