    This paper recalls an earlier moment and space of interdisciplinarity: the existence and disappearance of the Women’s Studies M.A. at Manchester Metropolitan University, within the context of a brief history of women’s historically recent access to University education and the consequent debates about whether women’s education should be the same as that offered to elite men. Women’s studies opened up for a short time a space for creative interdisciplinary work and these inheritances should not be erased but might contribute to thinking about interdisciplinarity beyond and against the marketization of University education.
