Amy Dru Stanley

Amy Dru Stanley is an American historian.


She graduated from Princeton University in 1978, and from Yale University with a Ph.D. in 1990. She taught at the University of California, Irvine. She teaches at the University of Chicago.[1][2]

She studies American history, centering on women, emancipation, and labor issues. She recently won a Quantrell Award from the University of Chicago for excellence in undergraduate teaching.[3]

On Valentine's Day, 1985 she was arrested, along with a group of local scholars and Stevie Wonder, during a protest against apartheid at the South African embassy in Washington, D.C.[4]

She is married to Craig Becker, who is the Co-General Counsel of the AFL-CIO, and resides in Washington, DC with him and their two sons.




Amy Dru Stanley's From Bondage to Contract is an extraordinarily nuanced study of the "paradoxes" (ix) of contract as the organizing principle of Gilded Age economic and social relations.[8]
