Having researched Amish life for nearly forty years, Dr. Johnson-Weiner has turned her attention to Amish women. Where much of the existing scholarship had subsumed Amish women, assuming perhaps that whatever was said about men was also true of their sisters, Dr. Johnson-Weiner explores how the sisters uniquely contribute to the communities that men and women build together.
Karen M. Johnson-Weiner is Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology Emerita, State University of New York at Potsdam. She is the author or co-author of several books on the Amish, including most recently The Lives of Amish Women and the forthcoming All About the Amish.
