Our favorite Cultural Historian, Angela Todd, is back on The Sparkle Hour for this summer sparkler mini-sode with a neat little trip down Memory Lane.
Her version of Summer Fun as an adult now includes some family bonding over a board game that she never thought she’d play, let alone get totally into (hint: she’s a Paladin).
I spent 18 years as “archivist and senior research scholar” in a science archive at a top university, ferreting out women to add to the files. I gave up on dead people and moved to helping living women make history!
There’s a part of me that loves academia, but there’s a part of me that thinks it’s not attached to the “real world.” And I’ve always had side jobs that were completely different from academic life: pub cooking, driving a delivery van, working in a produce market. They kept me connected. For me, the two realms have to be braided together; they need to inform each other. In my work now, they do.
I have undergraduate degrees in women’s studies and English, a Master’s degree in Literature and cultural theory, and hold the PhD/abd in cultural studies.
