Carol Dyhouse trained as a social historian and as a teacher. After a first degree in history from the University of Reading, she studied for a Diploma in Education, (awarded with distinction) and then an MA in Modern Social History (also awarded with distinction) at the University of Lancaster. After many years of teaching at Sussex and elsewhere Carol now spends most of her time researching and writing. She is active on the editorial boards of Women's History Review and History of Education, and has been a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society since 1998. In recognition of her scholarly work on the history of women's education, Carol was awarded an honorary degree (D.Litt) from the University of Winchester in 2004.
Carol Dyhouse's research interests are in the social history of nineteenth and twentieth century Britain, focussing on gender, education and women's lives. Her books include Girls Growing Up In late Victorian and Edwardian England (Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1981); Feminism and the Family in England, 1890-1939 (Blackwell, 1989); No Distinction of Sex? Women in British Universities 1879-1939, (UCL Press, 1995) and Students: A Gendered History, (published by Routledge in 2006).
More recently Carol has been working on a social history of glamour, exploring the changing meanings of the word 'glamour', its relationship to femininity and fashion, and what glamour has meant to women. Her book on the subject, Glamour: Women, History, Feminism, was published by Zed books in Spring, 2010.
Carol's essay on the history of the fur coat, entitled 'Skin Deep: the Fall of Fur' appeared in History Today, in November 2011. http://www.historytoday.com/carol-dyhouse/skin-deep-fall-fur
