Arwen Mohun

Arwen Mohun

Arwen P. Mohun specializes in the social and cultural historian of technology.   Her publications include Steam Laundries: Gender, Work, and Technology in the United States and Great Britain, 1880-1940 (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999); His and Hers: Gender, Consumption and Technology (University of Virginia Press, 1998) co-edited with Roger Horowitz; and Gender and Technology: A Reader (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003) co-edited with Nina Lerman and Ruth Oldenziel.

In her most recent book, Risk: Negotiating Safety in American Society (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013), Professor Mohun continues to explore her ongoing interests in the relationship between cultural concepts, in this case ideas of acceptable and unacceptable risk, and the changing material context of industrial societies.
