Research questions or problems? Give me a call.
This proved a happy arrangement, and when computers began to cast their long shadow over scholarly enterprise, I went back to school to consolidate my grasp of the new research technologies. In 1990 I received an M.L.S. from the Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science. I also acquired extensive institutional experience behind the reference desk at Harvard's Widener Library and in the archives of the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe. I am a member of the National Consortium of Independent Scholars and sometimes of the Association of Independent Information Professionals.
For the last fifteen years I have worked with scholars and other writers as researcher, research consultant, and editor. Some typical projects:
I co-authored Out of the Woods: Tales of Resilient Teens, published in 2006 by Harvard University Press, and an award-winning paper, "Narration in the Study of Resilience," for the 61st volume of Psychoanalytic Study of the Child (New Haven: Yale). I also wrote "Clothes, Inside Out," which appeared in I Shop, Therefore I Am: Compulsive Shopping and the Search for Self (2000), edited by A.L. Benson and published in 2000 by Aronson.

I specialize in nineteenth- and twentieth-century European and American intellectual history, including the history of psychiatry, psychology, and psychoanalysis. At present I am editing a piece on the Yiddish literary culture in Europe on the eve of WWII, and working on a study of information access issues for independent scholars. In-library and archival work undertaken with pleasure; backgrounds for novels are a particular interest. Please call to discuss your research needs.
