For Your Legal Historical Listening Pleasure

The event itself was quite sometime ago, but I only just discovered that the sessions at the Law, Knowledge and Imagination symposium at the University of Alabama School of Law devoted to “Law’s History: How Law Understands Its Past” (October 2007) are available as free downloads from the symposium’s website or iTunesU. The sessions are

Martin Flaherty, History “Lite” Revisited

Risa Goluboff, Of Vagrants and Wanderers: History and Mythology in Papachristou v. City of Jacksonville

William J. Novak, Law, History, and Constitutional Myth-Making

Mary Dudziak, Law as Public History: How Supreme Court Opinions, Like Historical Monuments, Enabe Visions of the Past to Shape the Future
