Why Women's History Matters: Leigh Ann Wheeler at TEDxBinghamtonUniversity

Leigh Ann Wheeler is an associate professor of History at Binghamton University and co-editor of the Journal of Women's History, the premier scholarly journal in the international field of women's history. Her first book, Against Obscenity: Reform and the Politics of Womanhood in America, 1873-1934, was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2004, and her second, How Sex Became a Civil Liberty, will be published by Oxford University Press later this year. She loves to teach women's history in addition to courses in the history of sexuality, and finds the Modern U.S. History survey course particularly enjoyable when she can teach it with her husband, who is also an historian. Their eight-year-old son, whether in self-defense or out of genetic inclination, is also a fan of history and a stern critic of whatever strikes him as sexist.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
