On the plague, sex, and rebellion

  1. In the late ‘90s, I worked on a master’s degree in history at a VERY patriarchal university in Texas. I ended up not finishing my thesis, completing a master’s in Secondary and Higher Ed later at a different institution.
    I so wish there had been a professor like you at my university. I think I would have finished if there had been.
    Thank you for all the fascinating content you put out. I’m looking forward to reading your book when it’s published.

    1. Aww Heather I am so sorry that you had to deal with that situation. It can be really difficult to overcome institutions in order to learn. I was lucky to have fabulous teachers along the way, but it doesn’t always work out like that. Anyway I am so glad you find all of this helpful!
