The Department History welcomes Dr. Margot Canaday from Princeton University to present the 2018 Ryland Lecture.

Margot Canaday is a legal and political historian at Princeton University. Her first book, The Straight State: Sexuality and Citizenship in Twentieth Century America (Princeton, 2009), won the Organization of American Historians' Ellis Hawley Prize, the American Political Science Association's Gladys M. Kammerer Award, the American Studies Association's Lora Romero Prize, the American Society for Legal History's Cromwell Book Prize, the Committee on LGBT History's John Boswell Prize, the Lambda Literary Award for LGBT Studies, as well as the Association of American Law Schools' Order of the Coif Biennial Book Award. Professor Canaday's current research shifts her focus from the state to the economy and demonstrates how workplaces mattered to queer lives in the past.

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.
