About Elizabeth Sharrow

My scholarly interests are in the history of public policy and the politics of sex and gender in the United States. My current research focuses on Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, particularly its application to the domain of sports. I am specifically interested in the ways public policy has shaped understandings of gender, race, sexuality, and class in U.S. politics over the past fifty years. My Ph.D. is in Political Science with a minor program in Feminist and Critical Sexuality Studies. I also hold a Masters in Public Policy with a focus on Gender, Law, and Sports Policy. I am jointly appointed in the Department of Political Science and the Department of History.
