Lied Center of Kansas
At the Lied Center Pavillion.
Presented by the Hall Center for the Humanities. Virginia Scharff’s critically acclaimed book, The Women Jefferson Loved (2010), puts Thomas Jefferson’s free and slave families into the same story, and reveals how Jefferson’s love for women shaped his ideas, achievements, and legacies. In so doing, Scharff offers readers a Jefferson who might belong to all of us. The book was named a New York Times “Editor’s Choice.” Scharff is Distinguished Professor of History at the University of New Mexico and Director for the Center for the Southwest. Her scholarly publications include Taking the Wheel: Women and the Coming of the Motor Age (1991); Twenty Thousand Roads: Women, Movement, and the West (2003), and the edited volume, Seeing Nature Through Gender (2003). She was Beinecke Research Fellow in the Lamar Center for Frontiers and Borders at Yale University (2008-9) and is Women of the West Chair at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles.
