To Be Read at some point in the future

Back from the OAH with a whole slew of stuff to read. Prepping for a new class on gender in American history next fall.

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! (can't make it all serious...)
  • Ehrenreich, Nickel and Dimed
  • Crow Dog, Lakota Woman
  • Butler, Gender Trouble -- OK, I get it, gender is a performance and you know a lot of big words.
  • Ryan, Mysteries of Sex
  • Spear, "Colonial Intimacies" -- so clear and useful! Wish more articles were like this one.
  • Godbeer, Sexual Revolution in Early America -- awesome! Loved it.
  • Barr, Peace Came in the Form of a Woman
  • Gutierrez, When Jesus Came, the Corn Mothers Went Away

    I remember liking Nickel and Dimed when I read it a few years ago, but haven't retained many of the details. I am a sucker for casual embedded tales of nonfiction, though.

    I also read nickel and dimed and saw the author speak...I liked it and was frustrated by it.

    also finished the bryson book when you want to talk to a real scientist.
