About this product
- DescriptionJan Whitt tells the stories of women who have been overlooked in journalism history, offering an important corrective to scholarship that narrowly focuses on the deeds of men like Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. She explores the lives of women reporters who achieved significant historical recognition, such as Ida Tarbell and Ida Wells-Barnett, as well as literary authors such as Joan Didion, Susan Orlean, Willa Cather, and Eudora Welty, whose work blends influences from both journalism and literature. This study shows how numerous women broadened the editorial scope of newspapers and journals, transformed women\u2019s professional roles, used journalism as a training ground for major literary works, and led breakthroughs in lesbian and alternative presses.
- Author BiographyJan Whitt is an associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and the author of Allegory and the Modern Southern Novel.
