Description
This is an active collection. Items date from 1992 and include course syllabi, minutes, notes, photographs, and rosters.
Background
The Teaching Workshop on U.S. Women's History was founded in 1978 at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) by Katherine Kish Sklar, a faculty member of UCLA's History Department. The Workshop was initially funded by grants from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH); additional support was obtained from the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton University. The Workshop's members are post-secondary faculty who are teaching, or plan to develop and teach, courses in United States (U.S.) women's history. Workshop attendees share syllabi; develop strategies for promoting the teaching of women's history; and discuss current research. The Workshop, hosted by the UCLA History Deparment, meets annually--usually the first weekend in February--on the UCLA campus. Members of the Workshop have included: Ellen DuBois, Mary Felstiner, Sherry Katz, Valerie Matsumoto, and Mary Logan Rothschild. NOTE: a related organization, the Women's Western History Group, is based at Arizona State University.
