Turpin

Andrea L. Turpin joined Baylor’s history faculty in 2011. She earned an A.B. at Princeton University, an M.A. at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Turpin specializes in 19th- and 20th-century U.S. history, focusing particularly on the interplay between gender ideals, religious beliefs and practices, and educational theory and practice. Her first book, A New Moral Vision: Gender, Religion, and the Changing Purposes of American Higher Education, 1837-1917 (Cornell, 2016), explored how the entrance of women into U.S. colleges and universities shaped changing ideas about the religious and moral purposes of higher education during the era of the rise of the modern college and university. Currently, she is researching a book project on how Protestant women navigated the religious debates that would culminate in the fundamentalist-modernist controversy of the early twentieth century.
