Personal bio
Andrea Rees Davies holds a PhD in history, a MA in history and a MA in religious studies from Stanford, as well as a BA in comparative religion and women’s studies from Harvard University. In addition to her work at the Humanities Center, Davies currently teaches a course on LGBTQ U.S. History and created a LGBTQ Oral History Project at Stanford. Davies’ research interests in the history of social inequality includes her book Saving San Francisco: Relief and Recovery After the 1906 Disaster, which reveals how new relief policies preserved social hierarchies in the early-twentieth-century city. Her interest in the social consequences of disasters was sparked by her experiences as a San Francisco firefighter. Davies has also worked on interdisciplinary research teams and published research studies on gender inequality in Silicon Valley high-tech companies, venture capitalist perceptions of women entrepreneurs, the history of the racialized and gendered “ideal worker” myth, and dual-career academic couples at U.S. research universities.
