Description: (This commitment to recovery work is reflected in the striking illustrations in both texts, though Kelley's does boast a much more extensive collection of images.) Viewing literacy as including women's personal writing and reading, as well as their use of oral skills in social settings, Kelley and Kerrison each regard the complex culture of women's pre- and post-Revolutionary literacy practices as a rich terrain for study. Whereas Kerrison mines individual book purchases, private journals, and correspondence to trace southern women's personal reading activities and underscore the ways they differed from young men's literacy practices, Kelley shows how formal educational institutions of the antebellum era-in all regions of the new nation-sought to set women's learning on a par with men's.
