About Professor Cooper and Recent Scholarship:
I am currently working on a survey analysis of women’s and feminists impact on peace movements and thinking from the early 19th century through the 1930s.
My other main interest is providing quality undergraduate education to today’s students in an era of “reformers” who are interested only in outcomes, productivity, assessment metrics and best practices – a lingo which promises an illiterate citizenry.
