In 1870s Peru, issues such as women’s access to education and work and women’s roles in creating a national identity came to light among a noteworthy group of female writers who participated in a series of literary workshops or “Veladas” hosted by the exiled Argentine Juana Manuela Gorriti from 1876 to 1877 in Lima. Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera, Clorinda Matto de Turner, and Teresa González de Fanning, among other notable female authors, found their literary voices through these gatherings. This thesis analyzes four key ideas emerging on the topic of education from the essays read at these workshops and published in Veladas literarias de Lima (1892) and those written by the same authors after their conclusion. The four central themes analyzed relate to women’s education and its link to nation building, women’s education as connected to religion and morality, the quality of women’s education, and a belief in women’s intelligence.
