Director Named for UCLA Women's Center

February 20, 1992

Historian Kathryn Norberg has been appointed director of UCLA's Center for the Study of Women.

Established in 1984, the center supports and coordinates research on gender, sponsors publications and programs on issues relating to women, and addresses public policy.

Norberg is an associate professor of history at UCLA whose specialties include women and gender in 17th- and 18th-Century France, and the history of women and religion in Europe. She is writing a book on prostitution in France during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Norberg said she hopes the center will help make feminism an integral part of the university. She said the center hopes to serve as "a strong institutional voice for women's concerns."

About 180 UCLA faculty participate in the center.
