dc.descriptionAnna Flaming, recipient of the 2009 College of Human Ecology Fellowship in the History of Home Economics, describes how home economists proposed a positive and diverse definition of the American homemaker. Through secondary and collegiate education and organized outreach to homemakers, home economists became important arbiters of American understandings of housewifery. Simultaneously, many home economists worked to defy stereotypes that equated home economics with housewifery and attempted to update the image of the discipline by eliminating its association with such domestic tasks as "cooking and sewing."en_US
