Oh, by the way, it’s women’s history month

via Tenured Radical, who announces that one of my former profs., Mary Beth Norton, Mary Donlan Alger Professor of History at Cornell University, and distinguished member of he Berkshire Conference of Women Historians, will appear on the new NBC series, “Who Do You Think You Are?”  this Friday, March 5, at 8pm EST.  Norton is the author of In the Devil’s Snare: The Salem Witchcraft Crisis of 1692 (Knopf, 2002) and will tell Sarah Jessica Parker of Sex and the City fame about her Salem witch ancestor.  Norton is also descended from a Salem witch.   Can’t wait to see how this turns out.   MB is a real hoot — this should be very entertaining.
