Claire G. Moses, Editorial Director Emerita

Claire Goldberg Moses was the Editorial Director of Feminist Studies from 1977 to 2011. She is professor emerita of women's studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Her publications include U.S. Women in Collective Struggle: A Feminist Studies Anthology, coedited with Heidi Hartmann (University of Illinois Press, 1995); Feminism, Socialism, and French Romanticism, coedited with Leslie W. Rabine (Indiana University Press, 1993); and French Feminism in the Nineteenth Century (SUNY Press, 1985), which was the winner of the Joan Kelly Prize for the year's best book in women's history. Among her many articles are "Made in America: 'French Feminism' in Academe," Feminist Studies (Summer 1998), Nouvelles Questions Féministes (in translation, 1996). Her research focuses on the history of French women and the history of feminist theory and activism. She has taught and/or lectured in China, Australia, Korea, Hungary, and France.

At Feminist Studies, she oversaw and coordinated all aspects of publishing a journal that is independent of any institution, association, or press. She deeply believes in the feminist ideal of collective work and insists that her work of so many years has been possible only because Feminist Studies models this ideal in the level of shared work engagement and responsibility on the part of all members of its collective in editing and producing the journal.
