Margaret Jacobs, Chancellor’s Professor of History at the University of Nebraska, will present a public lecture at the University of Oregon on Tuesday, February 24, from 3-5 p.m. in the Knight Library Browsing Room. It will be titled: “Remembering the Forgotten Child: the Indigenous Welfare Crisis of the 1960s-1970s.”

Professor Jacobs studies the history of the American West in a transnational and comparative context with a focus on women and gender as well as children and family. Through comparisons with Australia and Canada, she conceptualizes the American West as a site of settler colonialism and examines the complex historical processes and interactions that develop from this enterprise.

Immigrants often have to give up their customs to conform to the standards of their new society. But should newcomers to the U.S. be expected to discard their traditions, even though the right to culture is a basic human right? What are reasonable limits on the right to culture?

The University of Oregon School of Law presents the Bernard B. Kliks Professorship lecture:

“Degrees of Freedom: Intimacy, Slavery, and Legal Mobilization in Colonial Latin America,” with Professor Michelle McKinley

Michelle-McKinleyHow could enslaved women assert legal claims to personhood, wages, and virtue, when the law regarded them as mere property? Under what conditions did the civil law of slavery create opportunities for slaves to demand liberty and justice in a judicial forum? This talk will focus on enslaved women as legal actors within the landscape of Hispanic urban slavery: women who were socially disfavored, economically active and extremely litigious. A retrospective look at their freedom suits tells us how enslaved litigants strategically exploited the rhetorical power of liberty through recourse to the law, although their lived realities were decidedly unfree and unequal.

Professor Michelle McKinley is the Bernard B. Kliks Professor of Law at the University of Oregon School of Law and a member of the CSWS Advisory Board.
