Dr. Joyce Thierer has researched, published, and lectured in agrarian, western, and women's history. Performing, history, and teaching are her passions, which is why her history classes at Emporia State University are so popular. You can find her in the Kansas Humanities Council's Speaker's Bureau catalog. Joyce, who grew up on horseback, is a dynamite Calamity Jane. She also uses family stories to make farm woman Rosa Fix come alive. Below is an interactive experience of Dr. Thierer performing as Rosa Fix.
