Regents' Professor: Sally Kitch

Posted: Feb 25, 2011 | 4 min 12 sec

Sally L. Kitch has played a major role in the creation of the field of women's studies in the United States. She is known internationally for her pioneering research on the intellectual history of gender as a concept in the context of race, religion and other categories of social difference.

"She probably could easily be described as a pioneer," says Linda Lederman, dean of social sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. "She was one of the first feminist scholars who really helped push the boundaries and make women and gender studies become a discipline of its own. Previously people had studied the kinds of issues that she studies within disciplines such as social history or feminist thinking or literary criticism. It was people like Sally who really pushed the boundaries and help the economy see that the area of study really needed to be its own discipline."
