Haverford Township Free Library
Julie Gallagher is an Associate Professor of History and American Studies at Penn State University,
Brandywine where she has taught a variety of U.S. history courses over the past thirteen years.
She is the author of Black Women and Politics in New York City, which documented the political
activism of three generations of African American women as they pursued ways to bring about
positive changes in the state and national political landscapes through their formal political
activism. She also co-edited Reshaping Women’s History: Voices of Nontraditional Women
Historians with Barbara Winslow. Her current book project, “Frontline Battles for Justice in an Age
of Universal Human Rights: A Comparative Gender History,” is based on recent research trips to
Liberia, West Africa and Northern Ireland. The book will examine how members of civil society who
engage in activism in periods of political upheaval, tap into the resources of international bodies,
especially the United Nations, to challenge oppressive practices within their homelands.
