Wed, 01/02/2019

Professor Kathryn Ostrofsky, who received her Penn history PhD in 2015 and currently teaches at Angelo State University in Texas, has published a timely essay on CNN.com. The essay draws on her forthcoming history of Sesame Street, which in turn developed out of her Penn dissertation, "An Aural History of the 1970s Through the Sounds of Sesame Street."
