Becoming Historians

Joan Wallach Scott

University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents historian Joan Wallach Scott's memoirs, which trace how she became interested in critical history. Scott was not very much interested as a young student, but it was inevitable for her to become a historian because her parents were high school history teachers; their love and passion for history nurtured hers. Scott's latest project is a book on academic freedom; a history of the concept in the United States and an analysis of its applications.
