Historian of women and gender, passionate pedagogue, doing history in public.

For over thirty years, I have written about feminist activism and social change. In 2012 I started working in the digital humanities. My recent work focuses on local history, history pedagogy, and the intersections of landscape and history. 

After receiving my doctorate in women’s history from the University of California at Los Angeles, I pursued an alternative academic career 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 holding a joint appointment as an assistant professor of history. I am now an full professor of history at Rosemont College in Philadelphia teaching women’s and gender studies.

I sit on the American Historical Association’s Digital History Working Group and serve on the  Journal of Women’s History editorial board.
