Edith Morley

Edith Morley, the subject of The Sybil Campbell Seminar in May, is believed to be the first woman to be awarded the title of ‘Professor’ in a British university.  She was appointed as professor of English Language at University College, Reading in 1908 and remained there until her retirement in 1940.  She was a firm believer that women should have an equal place with men in academia and society.

The collection of her papers is held at the University of Reading but is not yet catalogued. However, the first Morley Distinguished Seminar was held at the university on International Women’s Day this year.

Professor Joyce Goodman (University of Winchester) has been researching her life and work in collaboration with Dr Jane Martin.
