Gay L. Gullickson
Professor Emerita

Professor Gullickson is the author of two books and numerous articles in women's history and French history. Her first book, Spinners and Weavers of Auffay, published in 1986 by Cambridge University Press, won the Berkshire Prize in History. It is a study of the sexual division of labor in the cottage textile industry and in agriculture in Normandy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Her second book, Unruly Women of Paris , published in 1996 by Cornell University Press, analyzes the ideological messages conveyed by verbal and visual depictions of the women who participated in the revolution known as the Paris Commune of 1871. Her current research is on the British Suffragettes. It is part of a larger project on women and secular martyrdom. Professor Gullickson has held several fellowships, including an NEH, a Danforth Teaching Associateship, and an Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship. She teaches courses in the history of women and gender, nineteenth-century social history, French history, and contemporary theory for historians. She was the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the History Department from 1997-2000 and the Associate Dean for Academic Policy of the Graduate School from 2004-2007. She is an affiliate faculty member of the Women's Studies Department and the Theatre Department.
