Elliott J. Gorn Biography

Elliott J. Gorn (Ph.D. Yale University, 1983, A.B. University of California, Berkeley, 1973) is the Joseph Gagliano Professor of American Urban History and has a distinguished record of scholarship, publication and excellence in teaching and student mentorship. His books and articles embrace multiple aspects of urban and American culture, particularly the history of various social groups in American cities since 1800. Gorn’s work is interdisciplinary and intersects with numerous other fields. His five major books examine various aspects of urban life and city cultures in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century United States, including Let the People See: The Story of Emmett Till, Dillinger’s Wild Ride: The Year That Made America’s Public Enemy Number One; Mother Jones: The Most Dangerous Woman in America; A Brief History of American Sports, co-authored with Warren Goldstein; and The Manly Art: Bare-Knuckle Prize Fighting in America.

Gorn has edited eight volumes, including Sports in Chicago; The McGuffey Readers: Selections from the 1879 Edition, with an introduction; Muhammad Ali, The Peoples' Champ; and The Encyclopedia of American Social History, 3 volumes, which was awarded the Dartmouth Certificate by the American Library Association. He has published and reprinted more than 50 articles, book chapters and reviews in a wide variety of scholarly journals, encyclopedias, edited collections and news magazines, including the American Historical Review, the Journal of American History, the Journal of American Studies, the Journal of Urban History, the Journal of Sport History, American Quarterly, the International Journal of Maritime History, Harper’s Magazine, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Mother Jones, Boom: A Journal of California, Le Monde Diplomatique Dissent On-Line, Slate, The Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune.

Gorn's teaching focuses on modern United States history, particularly social, cultural and urban history. He has taught courses on the history of sports, Chicago, masculinity and gender, film, biography and autobiography, war in American culture, and the United States survey. Gorn’s interest in the U.S. survey class (part of Loyola’s core curriculum) is reflected in his two-volume, co-edited (with Randy Roberts and Terry Bilhartz) textbook Constructing the American Past, A Sourcebook of a Peoples' History, now in its seventh edition. He co-taught a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College Teachers, “Biography and Social History” at the Newberry Library in 1997. Gorn is the recipient of the Miami University Distinguished Educator Award (1997) and the Effective Educator Award, Miami (1995, 1996). Since 2003, he has been a Distinguished Lecturer for the Organization of American Historians.

Gorn has developed strong relationships with Chicago cultural institutions in recent years. He was a scholar-in-residence at the Newberry Library from 1995-2013, where he taught the NEH seminar (1997) for college teachers mentioned above and served on a variety of committees. From 2000-03, he was the primary academic consultant for the exhibit Chicago Sports: You Shoulda’ Been There at the Chicago Historical Society (on display from April-December, 2003).

Gorn previously taught at Brown University (2003-2012), Purdue University (1998-2002), Miami University of Ohio (1985-98), and the University of Alabama (1981-85). He has served as the Fulbright Bicentennial Chair in North American Studies at the University of Helsinki, Finland (2009-2010); the Los Angeles Times Distinguished Fellow at the Huntington Library, San Marino, Calif. (2005-2006); a Fellow at the Purdue Center for Humanistic Studies (2000); a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow (1997-1998); a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow at the Newberry Library (1993-1994); an Irish American Cultural Institute Fellow (1993); an Andrew Mellon Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center (1988-1989); and a Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Fellow (1984-85)
