OLIVER, Graciela de Souza  y  FIGUEIROA, Silvia F. de M.. Ceres, women and the backlands: representations of the feminine and Brazilian agriculture in the first half of the twentieth century. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2007, n.29, pp.365-397. ISSN 0104-8333.

Our research on the historical trajectory of four Brazilian agricultural schools in the thirties and forties of the twentieth century does not show a significant number of women in the profession. Nevertheless, rethinking these data, inspired by the history of science and gender studies, it is possible to understand the meanings, and the role played of those women within society, and in the scientific milieu. We collected and analyzed speeches, poetry, official documents, images, and photos, which led to a reflection on these representations, as well as the process of institutionalization of agricultural science.

Palabras clave : History of Agricultural Science; History of Agriculture; Women Agronomists.
