Doreen Mattingly is interviewed by Anna Buckley. Mattingly begins by answering demographic questions. The current chair, as of the interview, Mattingly came to SDSU in 1995 only teaching 30% in Women's Studies and 70% in Geography but after receiving tenure in 2001 asked to move 100% to Women's Studies, preferring the "focus on public scholarship and activism and linking teaching to your research." She enjoyed working with the faculty already established in the department. She discusses the changes on campus since she began.
