Biographical Note

Linda Kay Schott was an Associate Professor of History and American Studies, and Director of the Center for the Study of Women and Gender, at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

Before coming to UTSA, Schott worked as an instructor at Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) from 1985 until around 1986, and at Texas Lutheran College for an indeterminate amount of time, apparently beginning in 1986. She earned a B.A. in History and German from Baylor University in 1979, an M.A. in History at Stanford University in 1981, and a joint Ph.D. in History and Humanities from Stanford University, with a major in United States history and minor in modern European history, in 1985.
