Clio in the Classroom provides concise, up-to-date overviews of American women’s history from colonial times to the present and takes into account ethnic, racial, and regional developments. Contributors offer concrete approaches for the classroom, including the use of oral history, visual resources, material culture, and group learning. Sexuality, citizenship, consumerism, religion, and other conceptual frameworks are employed as keys to understanding women’s history and American history. Carol Berkin (Baruch College) is professor of history at the Graduate Center.Over the last four decades, women’s history has developed from a novel and marginal approach to history to an established and flourishing area of the discipline.
