Hi! Love the blog and all the Vicki love. Quick question: do you know if Vantoch is pronounced "van-tosh" or "van-toc"?

Thank you!

I’m pretty sure that it’s pronounced “Vantok”. When she was introduced for her speech last October when she was keynote speaker at a convention (x), her name was stumbled over but they did pronounce it “Vantok”. So I’m fairly certain that’s how it’s pronounced.

Flawless human beings: Vicki Vantoch 

↳ “Sexuality comes in myriad shades of gray and you won’t know where it’s going to take you until you follow it. Sure, threesomes can profoundly change the way you think about your sexual identity. It can be super scary to play gay in a three-way, but it’s well worth the adventure. Maybe you’ll find that you love having your cock sucked by a man while your wife watches. Does that make you gay deep down? Who knows. If you don’t like same-sex lovin’, at least you tried; if you find that gay sex rocks your world, great, you’ve just doubled your pool of playmates-dive in. If you find that gay is your favorite way, then at least you didn’t miss out because you were too chicken to try it. So the choice is yours-either follow that Brokeback itch and find out where it leads, or take a cold shower…” 

NASA and Jameson Fellowships for 2006-07 Announced
The 2006–07 Fellowship in Aerospace history, which is sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and administered by the AHA was awarded to Victoria Vantoch, a PhD candidate at the University of Southern California. The NASA Fellowship honors advanced historical research in aerospace, throughout all fields and periods of history (scientific, cultural, technical, etc.). Vantoch, who is interested in the history of gender and sexuality, the history of science and technology, and social history and popular culture, is working on her doctoral dissertation entitled “Ambassadors of the Air: The Airline Stewardess, Glamour, and Technology in the Cold War, 1945–1969,” in which she seeks to make a comparative study of the role of female flight attendants in the United States and the Soviet Union during the critical years of the Cold War, examining in particular, their relationship to technology, politics, society, and culture. Vantoch is looking at society’s representations of these women, their function as icons of national identity as well as rhetorical tools in the ideological war between the United States and the Soviet Union. Through an analysis of these images, she seeks to expose broader perceptions of womanhood and female ideals in both societies. She was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2005 to research at the National Air and Space Museum.
