How do scholars become fascinated by their subjects and what is it like when they make a new discovery? How does the process of research, analysis, writing, and teaching change their perspectives of the world?
Join Professor Jocelyn Olcott for a discussion of her new book, International Women’s Year: The Greatest Consciousness-Raising Event in History, and her journey as a scholar of transnational women’s history. Olcott appears as a part of the Conversations with Scholars series presented by the Southwest Regional branch of the Durham County Library and the National Humanities Center.
