Peggy Pascoe Memorial Lecture Series
The 3rd annual Peggy Pascoe Memorial Lecture will take place in Academic Year 2013/2014.
Graduate Student Workshop
To honor Peggy’s dedication to graduate student education, we have added a graduate student workshop where a selected student who is doing exceptional work in Ethnic Studies will receive feedback from the lecture’s speaker. The seminar will be open to other graduate students whose work engages Ethnic Studies scholarship.
Peggy Pascoe was the Beekman Professor of Northwest and Pacific History and Professor of Ethnic Studies. An influential historian of her generation, authoring ground-breaking histories of the American West that centered on the intersections of race, gender and sexuality. Her book What Comes Naturally: Miscegenation Law and the Making of Race in America (Oxford University Press, 2009) received five prestigious awards in 2009. It won the Ellis H Hawley Prize, Lawrence W Levine Award, Joan Kelly Prize, John H. Dunning Prize, and was a finalist for the John Hope Franklin Prize.
Peggy Pascoe was a true treasure to the University of Oregon, and her dedication to see a thriving and stable Ethnic Studies Department led to her abundant and selfless mentorship of the department’s faculty.
