Karen Spierling

Karen E. Spierling is Professor of History and the John and Heath Faraci Endowed Professor at Denison University, a liberal arts college in Granville, OH.  She is also the mother of two teenage girls who are often—but not always—up for trying hard things. As a teacher and a mother, one of her favorite things is seeing young people move through the stages of “that sounds completely impossible” to “this is so hard, but I can see my way to the end” to “I can’t believe it did it — look at this awesome thing I did.”
