The National Women’s History Museum has named Emma Rothberg, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History, as an inaugural U.S. Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg Predoctoral Fellow in Gender Studies.
The fellowship, named in honor of the late U.S. Supreme Court justice, is meant to support the museum’s education department and assist in content creation for its online learning resources. As a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Rothberg’s research focuses on gender, urban, labor, and cultural history in the United States. Specifically, her dissertation focuses on urban parading culture between 1870 and 1920 and examines questions around democracy and citizenship as the nation urbanized. FOR MORE
