Some historians are women who sometimes make history themselves. Drew Gilpin Faust, historian, author, and president of Harvard University, discusses her career, the history profession, and her new book, This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War in The Washington Post of February 7, 2008.

Laura Thatcher Ulrich, president-elect of the American Historical Association, reads from her recent book, Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History on the Making History Podcast Blog, a venue fostering discussion about the writing process. In Part Two of the podcast, Ulrich offers advice to aspiring historians and discusses the challenges of research.
