Hartog to Deliver Inaugural Lecture at Oregon Law

Our friends at Oregon Law write that Hendrik Hartog, the Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor in the History of American Law and Liberty, professor of history, and director of the Program in American Studies at Princeton University, will serve as the inaugural distinguished lecturer for the Law, Culture and Humanities Initiative. His visit will take place on September 28 and 29 and culminate in a presentation from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in the Knight Library Browsing Room, on his forthcoming book, Someday All This Will Be Yours: A History of Inheritance and Old Age.

Look for the complete schedule of Oregon's Law, Culture, and Humanities Initiative in the near future.  The initiative "provides opportunities for faculty to integrate humanistic-based studies with the study of law, and to explore the increasingly diverse and rich scholarships in areas that include (but are not limited to) legal history, law and political science, law and literature, law and anthropology, and law and philosophy."
