The Susan Groag Bell Publication Fund in Women’s History honors the scholarly achievements and memory of Susan Groag Bell (1926-2015). Bell was a pioneering women's historian affiliated with Stanford for many years. A longtime member of Stanford’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research, Bell’s research and publications ranged widely across many aspects of women’s history, including, in particular, the fifteenth and sixteenth century and the author Christine de Pizan, the subject of her last major book The Lost Tapestries of 'The City of Ladies': Christine de Pizan’s Renaissance Legacy.
In keeping with Bell’s lifelong work, the Bell Fund supports the publication of scholarship that furthers the study of women’s and gender history. Books underwritten by the Bell Fund build upon the Press’s tradition of scholarly excellence and its commitment to producing books that will endure the test of time.
Books published with support from the Bell Fund include:
|Years of Glory: Nelly Benatar and the Pursuit of Justice in Wartime North Africa, by Susan Gilson Miller|
|Kharthoum at Night, by Marie Grace Brown|
|A Miscarriage of Justice: Women’s Reproductive Lives and the Law in Early Twentieth-Century Brazil by Cassia Roth|
|Before Trans: Three Gender Stories from Nineteenth-Century France by Rachel Mesch|
