Dr. Laura Browder – Faculty Author Interview

Dr. Laura Browder, Tyler and Alice Haynes Professor of American Studies, discusses her project and book, When Janey Comes Marching Home. The book features forty-eight self-posed photographs by Sascha Pflaeging, along with oral histories collected by Dr. Browder to provide a intriguing portrait of women at war. Women from all five branches of the military share their stories in this project – stories that are by turns moving, comic, thought-provoking, and profound. The book accompanies a photography exhibit that is on a national tour through Fall 2011 and Dr. Browder is also working a documentary film based on the book. For further information about the project, connect to the “Janey” website. Listen to the interview below.
