About Lynn Sacco

I am interested in the struggle to reconcile the contradictions between what we observe and what we believe. My research and teaching interests include the history of American women; sexuality and gender; medicine. law, and public policy; popular culture; and nineteenth century and twentieth-century U.S. history.
