Ryland Lecture: Rightward Bound: The Rise of Conservatism in Postwar America
Keller Hall, Reception Room
The History Department welcomes Dr. Bruce J. Schulman, William E. Huntington Professor and Chair of the History Department at Boston University, who will give the Charles and Elizabeth Ryland Lecture.
Bruce J. Schulman is the author of three books: From Cotton Belt to Sunbelt; Lyndon B. Johnson and American Liberalism; and The Seventies: The Great Shift in American Culture, Politics, and Society. In 2001, The New York Times named The Seventies one of its Notable Books of the Year. Schulman has also edited Rightward Bound: Making America Conservative in the 1970s, and The Constitution and Public Policy.
Schulman will lecture on the rise of conservatism in postwar America.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Charles and Elizabeth Ryland Fund, established by the Ryland family to fund an annual lecture on Virginia or American history.
