Professor Seth Cotlar

The Organization of American Historians recently announced Cotlar as one of 26 professors from the United States and British Columbia chosen to be 2018 OAH Distinguished Lecturers.

These scholars will join nearly 600 other OAH lecturers who give talks at college campuses, libraries and other public venues. They aim to promote understanding and appreciation of all facets of U.S. history, from the 1600s to today.

The OAH president-elect appoints the lecturers, who agree to present one talk on behalf of the organization each year and donate the speaking fee to the organization.

Cotlar, who has yet to be notified of his first talk, says he’s honored to be added to the list.

He says, “The list includes scores of scholars whose work I admire and with whom I’m flattered to be associated.”
