Event Description

Camille Walsh is a Ph.D. candidate in history at the UO and a 2008-09 Wayne Morse Dissertation Fellow. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Camille is researching the history of litigation in the struggle for equal education, beginning with Reconstruction-era cases in the late 1800's through the post-Brown v. Board era. She examines the role of race, class and economic inequality in these cases and how the absence of arguments based on class has contributed to modern school segregation. In this workshop, Camille will focus on early cases in the struggle for equal education.
