Even though I’m getting my Ph.D. in history, I think I will always consider Women’s and Gender Studies my ‘home’ discipline. As such, I’m trying to keep up with that scholarly world despite my current heavy reading load in history. This past semester, one way I stayed connected to the new literature on feminist pedagogy, a particular interest of mine, was by working on a book review. I reviewed Student Activism and Curricular Change in Higher Education for Interface: A Journal for and about Social Movements. Interface is an international, open-access journal for both scholars and activists with a diverse range of articles on social change and activism. My review is in the Spring 2012 issue, which is a themed issue on the Arab Spring.
