Susan Strasser is an award-winning historian and a Distinguished Lecturer for the Organization of American Historians. She has been praised by the New Yorker for “retrieving what history discards: the taken-for-granted minutiae of everyday life.” Her books include Never Done: A History of American Housework, Satisfaction Guaranteed: The Making of the American Mass Market, and Waste and Want: A Social History of Trash. She is Richards Professor Emerita of American History at the University of Delaware.
She has two current projects, and is available to lecture about both. A White Historian Reads Black History is a series of talks for community and religious groups. Snake Oil Revisited is her investigation of the history of medicinal plants in American culture.
