Faculty News: GWS Academic Director in the Media Talking about Nellie Bly

The Gender and Women's Studies program is excited to announce that our own Academic Director, Dr. Jean Lutes, was interviewed on NPR's national radio program Morning Edition today! She discussed the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nellie Bly, the famous American female reporter. You can listen to the interview on NPR's website.

In addition, Dr. Lutes participated in a podcast of the Great Lady Nerds of American History special, talking about Nellie Bly. The show aired over the Fourth of July weekend of 2014 and is available to listen to here.

To see more on Dr. Lute's writing on Nellie Bly, there is a link to an electronic version of a newspaper article from the Mainline Times here.

Dr. Lutes has also edited a Penguin Classics edition of Bly's new stories that you can see here.
