Of History and Tradition: Abortion and Patriarchy in Small Town New England ca. 1860

Every two years the History Department and Law School invite a distinguished guest for the Simpson Lecture and Dawson Seminar. The events bring distinguished scholars to campus and reinforces the longstanding ties between U-M’s Law School and Department of History.

This year our guest is Kate Masur (Northwestern University) and the events will be held on March 6th and 7th.

Kate Masur’s most recent book, Until Justice Be Done, received multiple prestigious legal history prizes and was a Pulitzer finalist. Her Simpson Lecture is titled, “Abortion and Patriarchy in Small Town New England ca. 1860.”
