Harry Kreisler welcomes historian Joan Wallach Scott who traces her intellectual odyssey and recalls the impact of the women's movement on her research and teaching. She describes the intellectual influences that led her to write the now classic article, "Gender: A Useful Category of Historical Analysis." She also discusses the utility of critical history for elucidating contemporary policy debates with a focus on her recent book "The Politics of the Veil," an analysis of the political, cultural, and social factors that led to the French ban on the wearing of the veil by Muslim young women in public schools.
