Nancy G. Rosoff ’78, historian

Back to campus and back to campus history tonight! Using materials from the MHC archives, Nancy G. Rosoff, Ph.D. will describe the impact of WWI on campus, and the variety of experiences for members of the Mount Holyoke community. She will talk about students and alumnae, as well as activities that incorporated the entire College community.

Nancy’s research focuses on women’s and gender history, American and British popular culture, women and sports, and the history of education. Her recent book, co-authored with Stephanie Spencer, British and American School Stories, 1910 – 1960: Fiction, Femininity, and Friendship won the 2020 Anne Bloomfield Prize for the best book written in English on the History of Education. Some of Nancy’s more recent work has drawn on the online sources available via Mount Holyoke’s Archives and Special Collections.
