Personal
Biography
Beth Kraig's strongest interests center on the history of discrimination and oppression (and resistance to those forces) in the United States, and especially in the 20th century. Her research into the subject include examinations of anti-gay ballot measures in the 1970s, racism in the military in World War II, and feminist voices in popular literature in the post-WWII decades. She is actively involved in interdisciplinary programs and fields of study, including Women's Studies and Peace Studies, and has participated in research and projects that center on the importance of historical thinking in interdisciplinary contexts.
