Research – Study of Wesleyan Girls’ Education published


Dr Linda Ryan, a former PhD student in the Centre, has recently published an article in Wesley and Methodist Studies (vol 8, no. 2,  June 2016) entitled ‘Wesleyan Perspectives on the Education of Girls in Eighteenth Century England’. Dr Ryan argues that while Wesley was in many ways progressive in his attitudes to women preachers and the admission of girls to Kingswood School, many of his ideas were more complex and less advanced.
