Elizabeth Salem

I am a Ph.D., historian, writer, researcher, wife, mother, Trekker, geek, feminist, lover of museums, television addict, Steampunk, spiritual wanderer, and devourer of novels. I live in Cleveland, Ohio, with my husband, daughter, son, and two rambunctious cats.

I hold a doctorate in History from Case Western Reserve University. My research focuses on the nineteenth-century United States, women’s history, and the history of medicine. My dissertation, “Gendered Bodies and Nervous Minds: Creating Addiction in America, 1770-1910,” examined how Americans understood and portrayed substance abuse from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. The short version: it hasn’t changed as much as you may think!

I also hold a Master of Arts in History from CWRU and a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Political Science from Notre Dame College. (For more on my professional accomplishments, my CV and resume can be found here.)

My current projects include conducting research and creating content for a commemorative centennial book project at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University, as well as beginning research on two book projects, both biographies (more on that later).
