In Conversation with Michelle Nickerson

Michelle Nickerson is Assistant Professor of History at Loyola University, Chicago where she teaches U.S. women’s, gender, and urban history. Nickerson recently published Mothers of Conservatism: Women and the Postwar Right, which documents the grassroots activism of conservative women in Cold War Los Angeles and explores the impact of that activism on the emerging American right. This work has led to her interest in regional and metropolitan political-economic development, which she examines in a volume essays, co-edited with historian Darren Dochuk called Sunbelt Rising: The Politics of Place, Space, and Region published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2011.
