2007 Herbert G. Gutman Memorial Lecture
Historian Joshua Freeman to Speak on Gutman’s Legacy: Writing the History of Postwar America Twenty Years Later
On Tuesday, April 17, Joshua B. Freeman, Professor of History at The Graduate Center, will deliver the 2007 lecture in recognition of the life and work of the late labor historian and co-founder of ASHP/CML, Herbert Gutman. Freeman will revisit Gutman’s scholarship to examine its implications for writing the history of the United States since World War II. One of the original authors of our Who Built America? textbook (the third edition of which will be published by Bedford Books late this year), Freeman’ most recent book is Working-Class New York: Life and Labor Since World War II. The event, co-sponsored by ASHP/CML, the Herbert G. Gutman Memorial Fund, the Center for the Humanities, and the Ph.D. Program in History, will begin at 6:30 in the Skylight Room (9100) at The Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue in New York City).
