BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Carroll Smith-Rosenberg was born in 1936. She earned her B.A. from the Connecticut College for Women in 1957, her M.A. in 1958 and Ph.D. in 1968 from Columbia University. She was appointed Research Assistant Professor at Penn in 1970, Assistant Professor in 1972 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1974. She served as Director of Women’s Studies Program at Penn from 1983 to 1995.

In 1971, she taught the first course on “Women in America” at Penn. Active in the women’s rights movement in Philadelphia, Smith-Rosenberg traced the dispute and stress about women’s traditional role as mother and housekeeper to the eighteenth century. Her study of women, sex roles and socialization in the United States is believed to have contributed to the understanding of the development of women’s role in society. She is the author of Religion and the Rise of the American City (1971), Disorderly Conduct: Visions of Gender in Victorian America (1985), and over a dozen of articles and book reviews on women, sex, family and society.

Carroll Smith-Rosenberg left Penn for the University of Michigan in 1996.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The papers of Carroll Smith-Rosenberg document her research interest and teaching experience at Penn. Major files in the collection are recommendations she wrote for the students, papers and projects of the students from her classes, teaching files containing notes, syllabus and reference material, and papers and articles she collected done by other scholars on subjects that interest her most–women, sex and society.
