Boise State University | History

Leslie Madsen-Brooks is a professor, public historian, museum consultant, and wayward academic technologist. Since 2010, Leslie has taught history to undergraduate and graduate students at Boise State University in Idaho, though her academic pedigree is not steeped in history. She majored in English at Grinnell College, then earned a Master’s in writing poetry from the University of California, Davis before going on to earn both a Master’s and Ph.D. in cultural studies from that same institution. Her interdisciplinary background has brought her to students in many different disciplines; since she first stepped into the college classroom in 1999, she has taught literature, composition, American studies, museum studies, U.S. history, and public history.
