By Bonnie Morris, Georgetown University's 2012 Professor of the Year!
A lively, revealing, and provocative overview. You don't need to be a scholar to notice that man's history dominates everything we learn in school; yet a quick tour of the past reveals dynamic female role models at every turn. ISBN 9781934389607.
After earning my Ph.D from Binghamton's women's history program in 1990, I taught one of the first-ever graduate seminars on Jewish women's history at Harvard, served as global women's studies professor for the Semester At Sea program, and then joined the women's studies faculty at both George Washington University and Georgetown. Here in D.C., I teach Women and Western Civilization, Gender and Athletics, Women and War, and Introduction to Women's Studies. Yes, a workload of three classes each fall and four classes each spring, with top teaching evaluations from the 300-plus students I mentor every year. Each June I work as an Exam Leader for the College Board, scoring AP U.S. History exams; each August I work at the Michigan Women's Music Festival, where I will now be coordinating the Community Center. When do I write? In the cracks, the nooks & crannies, the superlative fissures, the creased paper trails begging for my ink. L'chaim!
From local to global: when not on campus lecturing (or cheering at women's athletic events), I'm in D.C. emceeing the Mothertongue open mic for women writers or networking as a scholarly advisor to the National Women's History Museum being built here. I tour with my one-woman play and archive my field notes from festival culture for the Schlesinger Library's special collection. HOW'S IT ALL DONE? Coffee; vitamins; love.
