Professor of human development at Cornell University, Joan Jacobs Brumberg has devoted much of her energy to studying the social experiences of 13-21 year old girls in the United States over the past 100 years. Her numerous papers and books deal with a wide range of cultural issues: the changing social and cultural experience of menarche and menstruation; the changing nature of educational and work opportunities; parenting; popular culture and leisure; and diseases of girls. In 1988, she published Fasting Girls: The Emergence of Anorexia Nervosa as a Modern Disease. In 1997, The Body Project: An Intimate History of American Girls was published. Brumberg holds a B.A. in history from the University of Rochester (1965) and a Ph.D. in American social and cultural history from the University of Virginia (1978).
