Lyde is a badass! She takes her class very seriously and if you do as well, you will be rewarded with some powerful knowledge. Its's very cool that she gives a lot of primary sources to read, though the ones that exceed the 200 page mark can be very daunting.

Lyde is the most amazing teacher I've had in my entire life, and the best professor I've encountered at Sarah Lawrence. She's tough, kind, funny, endearing, brilliant, and structured in the most helpful way. Her class was also an enormous challenge--1000% worth it in the end, but be prepared!

You are at a major disadvantage, if you never take her class. Lyde is the quintessential instructor, who really cares about her students, and not out to make a name for herself!

Lyde picks the loudest voice in the room, right or wrong, and lets that person dominate. There is a difference between intellectual debate and interference, and while Lyde means well, she's yet to differentiate.

Lyde is probably one of the best professors at SLC. She DEEPLY cares about each of her students and challenges them in the best way possible. TAKE HER CLASS! She changed my life.

Wonderful teacher & amazing person, full of energy and passion for history. Make no mistake, her classes are not easy-I’ve never worked so as I did in her class. You will read a lot and better be prepared to discuss and defend your opinions. She picks controversial topics that stir emotions and reactions. She will make you think and speak up.

Lyde is an amazingly intelligent professor whose class I found very reading intesnsive and challenging but also very rewarding. Though my interest in women's history was only moderate at best, Lyde made class interesting by helping to guide thoughtful discussions and was very supportive in conference. I'm sure she would also be an awesome don.
