OAH Distinguished Lecture Series Adds Legal Historians Canaday, Goluboff and Gordon

The Organization of American Historians recently welcomed twenty-five new OAH Distinguished Lecturers for 2012-2013. Three legal historians are among the group: Margot Canady (Princeton); Risa Goluboff (Virginia); and Sally Barringer Gordon (Pennsylvania). The Distinguished Lecture Series, established in 1981, is a speakers bureau dedicated to American history. OAH Distinguished Lecturers speak around the country every year, visiting college campuses and addressing undergraduate and graduate student conferences. They also engage general audiences at public events sponsored by historical societies, museums, libraries, and humanities councils. More than 400 historians have participated in the program.
