Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz

Associate Professor & Social Science Teaching Program Coordinator

Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz is a historian of the 19th century United States who specializes in in American women's history. Her first book, The Tie That Bound Us: The Women of John Brown's Family and the Legacy of Radical Abolitionism, was published in 2013 and was named a Kansas Notable Book in 2014. She is now working on a project about 19th century women's rights reformers and the intersections of their ideology about women's rights and citizenship with their experiences of motherhood. She teaches the US survey, American women's history, history of the American family, social studies teaching methods, and historical research/writing, and she serves as coordinator for Social Science Teaching. In that capacity I work with students interested in teacher licensure in the History Department as well as in the Social Science Studies program (for those who wish to concentrate in Geography, Political Science, Psychology, or Sociology-Anthropology while seeking teacher licensure).
