Natalie Zemon Davis in Toronto

Natalie Zemon Davis, the terrific American (and sometimes Torontonian) historian of most everything (but usually involving the history of women and gender-relations in some fashion) will deliver the John Edwards Lecture at the University of Toronto's Centre of Criminology on January 25, 2010 at 4.30.

Her topic (see, she is interested in everything) is "Judges, Masters, Diviners: Slaves' Experience of Criminal Justice in Colonial Suriname." Not a subject high on my priority list of topics, probably. Except I once interviewed NZD, and I have never met an historian who so truly enjoyed history and seemed to bring that zest to whatever she studied.

More info and contacts here, except it seriously needs updating.
