Abstract

FRANCOIS FURSTENBERG AND ¸ D AV I D WA L D S T R E I C H E R ``Let us imagine a space for where femmes savantes might speak freely about politics with politicians, art with artists, gentility with gentlemen, and even the theory and practice of domesticity if they so chose.' '' ``Republican Court--the focus of society for the new governing class.'' ``Such an institution did exist. . . .'' In a series of conference papers delivered in the mid-1990s to the early 2000s, Fredrika J. Teute and David S. Shields performed an act of historical recovery in front of an audience of early American historians. The papers were a signal contribution to scholars seeking to gauge women's role in early national politics and public life. Ranging across methodological, geographical, and disciplinary boundaries, they opened new vistas by moving beyond the public/private dichotomy that had implicitly structured much historical analysis.1 Francois Furstenberg is associate professor of history at Johns Hopkins Univer¸ sity. David Waldstreicher is Distinguished Professor of History, CUNY Graduate Center. 1. David S. Shields and Fredrika J.
