B.A., Harvard (1964); B.Phil., Oxford (1966); Ph.D., Harvard (1970). Before Columbia, Professor Douglas taught at Princeton from 1970-74--the first woman to teach in its English Department. She received a Bicentennial Preceptorship from Princeton for distinguished teaching in 1974, and a fellowship from the National Humanities Center in 1978-79 after publishing The Feminization of American Culture (1977). She received an NEH and Guggenheim fellowship for 1993-94. Her study Terrible Honesty: Mongrel Manhattan in the 1920's (Farrar, Straus, 1995) received, among other honors, the Alfred Beveridge Award from the American Historical Association, the Lionel Trilling Award from Columbia University, and the Merle Curti Intellectual History Award from the Organization of American Historians. She has published numerous essays, articles and book reviews on American culture in papers and periodicals such as The New York Times, The Nation and Slate, and introductions for Little Women, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Charlotte Temple, Minor Characters, The Subterraneans, Studs Lonigan, and Word Virus: The William S. Burroughs Reader. Prof. Douglas teaches twentieth-century American literature, film, music, and politics, with an emphasis on the Cold War era, African-American culture, and post-colonial approaches. She is currently at work on a book, Noir Nation: Cold War U.S. Culture 1945-1960. In Spring 2002, she was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences for her work in History. In 2008, she became a member of the New York Academy of Historians.
