Goluboff to Lecture on Vagrancy Laws at the Kluge Center

[We're moving up this notice, as Professor Goluboff will be speaking later this week.]

The John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress has announced a series of lectures and events for the first half of 2013.  On April 11, 2013, Risa Goluboff, Virginia Law, will lecture on “People Out of Place: The Sixties, the Supreme Court, and Vagrancy Law.”  She will examine “how 1960s vagrancy laws served to keep marginal populations in place, and how the laws' undoing contributed to the era's social revolutions.”  She will speak from 12:00–1:00 p.m. in Room LJ-113 of the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.

The complete list of events is here.
