VASCONCELOS, MARIA CELI CHAVES. Foreign preceptors to educate girls in Brazilian houses of the 19th century. Cad. Hist. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.2, pp.285-308.  Epub 01-Mayo-2019. ISSN 1982-7806.

In Brazil, the nineteenth century was the period in which many European women, mainly German, French and English, came to country to perform the office of preceptors in the houses of the Imperial Court, announcing their services by newspapers of great circulation at the time. The study aims to demonstrate the incidence of the arrival of these women, in the 1880s, for the work of preceptors in the houses of nineteenth-century elites, as well as discuss the educational practices they developed to teach, especially girls. This is a historicaldocumentary research whose sources include advertisements and articles from newspapers and magazines of education and instruction for families and women, as well literary texts as egodocuments, such as diaries and letters written by the preceptors themselves or by witnesses of this practice. It was concluded that education, by European preceptors, was considered a social differential and contained educational practices analogous to European school models.
