Profs & Pints: Ask Eleanor Roosevelt
Profs and Pints presents: Ask Eleanor Roosevelt, a look at the iconic first ladys long career as an advice columnist, with Mary Jo Binker, adjunct professor of history at George Mason University and a consulting editor for the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project at George Washington University.

Advice columnist is not the first term that comes to mind when most people think of Eleanor Roosevelt. Yet, this transformative first lady and icon of female empowerment did exactly that in two major womens magazines for more than 20 years.

Her answers to a wide range of reader querieson everything from world peace and race relations to how to deal with rebellious teenagers and difficult mothers-in-laware equally surprising. There was no filter and very little spin. In fact, her answers to readers queries were so honest, forthright, and insightful, that her editors felt compelled to issue a disclaimer saying her views were her own and did not represent those of the magazine or, in the columns early years, the Roosevelt Administration.

This talk will introduce you to this other Eleanor Roosevelt, a woman whose wise, witty, and surprisingly sensible opinions remain as relevant as the latest tweet. The speaker, historian Mary Jo Binker, has spent almost twenty years studying Eleanor Roosevelts written and spoken record, primarily as an editor at the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project at George Washington University. Besides working as part of an editorial team that has published two volumes of Eleanor Roosevelts post-White House papers, she edited two collections of Eleanor Roosevelts writings, If You Ask Me: Essential Advice from Eleanor Roosevelt and What Are We For: The Words and Ideals of Eleanor Roosevelt.

Her talk represents an incomparable opportunity to learn about this pivotal American figure. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)
