Historian of women and gender, passionate pedagogue, doing history digitally

For over twenty years, I have written about feminist cultural activism.  My largest body of scholarship concerns artists’ involvement in the women’s liberation movement but I have also published on women’s participation in a wide range of social movements including peace and woman suffrage.  I try to publish open access as frequently as possible and share that work online. Much of my paywalled work was written in public so drafts of it are available. In the past, I have also write for a variety of public outlets, including Inside Higher Education, Women and Higher Education, Chronicle of Higher Education. During 2015-2016 I wrote about digital humanities for the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Humanities.

After receiving my doctorate in women’s history from the University of California at Los Angeles, I pursued an alternative academic career for six years, first as the assistant director of the women’s leadership program at Mount St Mary’s College in Los Angeles where I also taught women’s studies and history and then as the Director of the Women’s Center at William Paterson University of New Jersey where I held a joint appointment as an assistant professor of history. I am now an associate professor of history at Rosemont College in Philadelphia where I also teach women’s and gender studies.

I sit on the American Historical Association’s Digital History Working Group and serve as the digital history projects editor for Women and Social Movements.  As a participant in the larger digital humanities community, I frequently consult on digital humanities for small liberal arts colleges, offer workshops on digital pedagogy, and help to develop digital history projects with undergraduates.
