Dear Ms. Reuben:
In June we both graduated from the History of Consciousness program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The History of Consciousness Board of Studies is interdisciplinary, and it is possible within the program to concentrate in an established discipline. Both of us concentrated our study within the area of women's studies; we had women's studies faculty on our oral and dissertation committees. Karen's dissertation was "The Social Construction of Female Sexual Experience," and Sally's was "That Word is Liberty: A Biography of Matilda Joslyn Gage" (a nineteenth-century American feminist).
