Carlie Visser selected as Champion for Mental Health

Carlie Visser (PhD Candidate) has been selected as Champion for Mental Health. 

She was nominated by one of her students in HIST 283: Gender in North American History, 1880 to 2000, which she taught in Winter 2022. 

The Champions for Mental Health Program recognizes and celebrates educators and staff members who create supportive environments where student mental health is valued and supported.

Carlie is completing her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Rosanne Currarino. Her research interests include US intellectual, political, and cultural history in the 20th century, with a particular focus on the histories of feminism and women’s organizing. Her dissertation explores the intellectual life and legacy of the elusive feminist community of the Heterodoxy Club (1912-1940) in Greenwich Village and its role in the articulation of, as they termed it, a “new attitude of mind” called Feminism. 

Congratulations, Carlie!
