Please join us for a conversation about the LGBT workforce in America in honor of the publication of Margot Canaday’s important new book, which shows how LGBT history helps us understand the recent history of capitalism and labor and rewrites our understanding of the queer past.
Margot Canaday is professor of history at Princeton University. She is the author of The Straight State. Hendrik Hartog is Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University. He is the author of Public Property and Private Power: the Corporation of the City of New York in American Law, 1730-1870; Man and Wife in America: a History; Someday All This Will Be Yours: A History of Inheritance and Old Age; and The Trouble with Minna: A Case of Slavery and Emancipation in the Antebellum North.
This event is cosponsored by Princeton University’s Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, History Department, and Humanities Council.
