Laurel Thatcher UlrichIn this second half of her podcast interview, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich offers some favorite slogans besides Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History as she gives advice to aspiring historians. In discussing the challenges of research she advises that “serendipity seldom strikes in the shower or on the beach–serendipity most often happens in the archives.” In speaking about using archival materials, she suggests that “if your source doesn’t answer your question, change your question.”

This provocative Q&A with Ulrich includes her thoughts about the renaissance of women’s history, touches on the tensions she experiences as both a feminist and a Mormon, and gives some details about her new research projects.
