Short biography
Christine Bolt graduated from the University of London. She was one of the founding members of the Board of Studies in History (now the School of History) at the University of Kent, England, which she joined in 1966 as Lecturer in American history. She rose to become a full professor and Pro‐Vice Chancellor, the first woman to hold a senior administrative position at the University of Kent. She spent the years 1969–1971 in the USA teaching at Wayne State University in Detroit and conducting research at the Newberry Library in Chicago. Her first book, The Anti‐Slavery Movement and Reconstruction: A Study in Anglo‐American co‐operation, 1833–1877, was published in 1969, based on her doctoral dissertation. It was followed by Victorian Attitudes to Race (1971); A History of the USA (1974), aimed primarily at English undergraduate readers; Power and Protest in American Life (1980), co-authored with her colleague Alec Barbrook; American Indian Policy and American Reform (1987); The Women’s Movements in the United States and Britain from the 1790s to the 1920s (1993); Feminist Ferment: 'The Woman Question’ in the USA and England, 1870–1940 (1995); and a companion volume, Sisterhood Questioned: Race, Class, and Internationalism in the American and British Women’s Movements, 1880s–1970s (2004).
