Bonnie Hagerman graduated cum laude from Princeton University in 1991 with a B.A. in Anthropology. After teaching high school social studies and history for five years, she pursued graduate studies at Ohio University with an intent to combine her interests in American history, feminism, and sports. Her resulting Ph.D. dissertation, “Skimpy Coverage,” examines Sports Illustrated’s treatment of sportswomen in its pages from 1954 to 2000. Hagerman began teaching for WGS in 2008, and has taught “Women, Gender, and Sport: A History of American Female Athletes” every year since that time. In addition to serving as a lecturer for Women, Gender & Sexuality, Hagerman is also the Associate Director for the Center for the Liberal Arts at the University of Virginia, an organization that seeks to provide high-quality content-enrichment programs for K-12 teachers.
