Jennifer Mittelstadt

Associate Professor

I am a political historian of the United States writing about women and gender, race, and the state. I specialize in the twentieth century, especially post-World War II, and my interests in politics are quite broad.  They include social policy and social politics; liberalism; second-wave feminism; and most recently, the military and militarization.  I have published articles and opinion pieces in the Journal of Policy History, International Labor and Working Class History, the Journal of Women’s History, Social Politics, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times, among others.  I am currently writing a book on the United States Army, social welfare, and politics in the late twentieth century.
