My research and teaching interests are in 20th century U.S.
history with a specialization in women and gender history.
My publications include: Gender and the Politics of Welfare
of Chicago Press, 1997) and the Encyclopedia of Women in American
History, 3 vols. (2002) which I co-edited. I am currently working
on two book manuscripts: a documentary history of women in Las Vegas
and a collection of edited oral histories of women in Las Vegas.
Additional information is available on my vitae.
Since coming to Las Vegas, I have become involved in writing histories
of women who have helped to build this community. To that end, I
have worked with others to create the Nevada Women's Archive at UNLV;
I direct the Las Vegas Women Oral History Project; and I direct the
Women's Research Institute of Nevada, a state-wide program. These
activities provide opportunities for graduate students to collaborate
with faculty on research projects.
