City Club Of Boise Welcomes Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

ltulrich_-_the_awakening.png

Idaho native Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, professor, author, and historian addressed the City Club of Boise for  the 3rd Annual Marilyn Shuler Human Rights Forum.

Ulrich studied English at University of Utah and earned her Ph.D. at the University of New Hampshire. In 1976, Ulrich wrote the now-famous phrase “well-behaved women seldom make history” which has taken on international significance and became the framework for her 2007 book with the same name.

Dr. Ulrich’s work often centers on the lives and work of ordinary people in history, especially early Americans, and through that lens examines gender roles, community, and economics in history. Her most famous book, “A Midwife’s Tale,” was later the basis for a PBS documentary film and won a Pulitzer Prize.
Ulrich was also named a MacArthur Fellow, and is now 300th Anniversary University Professor, Emerita, at Harvard University.

A lifelong Idahoan, Erik has worked for Boise State Public Radio in many capacities over 20 years and is pleased to help bring non-commercial radio news and music to listeners. When he's not wrangling promotions or satellite schedules, he can be heard as weekday host on our news service.
