This chapter presents historian Joan Wallach Scott's memoirs, which trace how she became interested in critical history. Scott was not very much interested as a young student, but it was inevitable for her to become a historian because her parents were high school history teachers; their love and passion for history nurtured hers. Scott's latest project is a book on academic freedom; a history of the concept in the United States and an analysis of its applications.
