Historian, born in Detroit, Michigan, USA. She studied at Smith and Radcliffe Colleges and the University of Michigan (1959 PhD), and taught at Brown University (1959–63), the University of Toronto (1963–71), the University of California, Berkeley (1971–8), and Princeton (1978). A foremost practitioner of the ‘new social history’, she engaged in almost anthropological research into the lives of the artisans, labourers, and peasants of 16th-c France, resulting in such works as The Return of Martin Guerre (1983) (which was used as the basis for French and American films).
