Rate this:

Raised on a Manitoba farm in the 20s and 30s, Margaret Fulton, like many women of her time, became a teacher. Strongly influenced by thinkers like Thomas Carlyle and Virginia Woolf, Fulton diverged from the traditional career path. She forged her way to become the only female president of a coeducational university in Canada, when she took on that role at Halifax's Mount St. Vincent University in 1978. A feminist, teacher, theorist of education, public speaker, and advocate of social and political reform, Fulton has received the Order of Canada, a Governor General's Award and more than a dozen honourary degrees in recognition of her life's work. In Transformations: The Life of Margaret Fulton, James Doyle explores her life, formative experiences, and widely respected ideas on education. Written with Fulton's blessing, this biography celebrates her lifelong commitment to positive change and her role as an important catalyst in the ongoing process of social transformation.
