The purpose of this conference is to explore the representations women give of themselves, and to consider the significance they attribute to their knowledge and expertise. We shall attempt to evaluate the degree to which women defined their identity according to their knowledge and to the developments that characterized the epistemological models of the period. Though women’s access to learning was extremely limited, we shall consider to which degree they nevertheless appeared as generators of knowledge and innovation in the eyes of their contemporaries as well as in our own.
