I'm the Merle Hoffman Director of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture and the Curator of Gender and Sexuality History Collections in the Rubenstein Library. I help to acquire and promote the use of a wide range of rare and unique materials related to women, gender, and sexuality. My particular interests include feminist activism and theory, reproductive health and rights, and the history and culture of LGBTQ communities.
