Assistant Professor of History
Dr. Emily Johnson teaches modern American history, with a focus on women and gender. Her first book, This Is Our Message, (forthcoming from Oxford University Press) tells the story of female leaders in the modern religious right, from the 1970s to the present day. This book explores the complexities of women's leadership in a movement that centrally emphasizes a return to traditional gender roles. Dr. Johnson received her Ph.D. from Yale University in 2014.
