Weekend Round-Up

  • The Journal of American History review of Tomiko Brown-Nagin's Courage to Dissent is here (albeit behind a pay wall if not affiliated with a subscriber, I'm afraid).
  • The Jacobus tenBroek Library of the National Federation of the Blind has established a website for its special collections, among them, "326 linear feet of the Jacobus tenBroek Personal Papers."  Hat tip: H-Law.
  • Around the colloquia: This week Heather Hawkins, Minnesota History, presented "Not Without Their Voluntary Consent: Parental Rights and Federal Law in the late 19th and 20th Century American Indian Boarding Schools” at Minnesota Law.  Tim Lytton, Albany Law, presented "Can You Believe It's Kosher? Trust, Reputation, and Non-Governmental Regulation in the Age of Industrial Food” at Brooklyn Law.  Hat Tip: Legal Scholarship Blog
  •  The Special Collections Librarians at Boston College Law School has posted an audiorecording of the visit of Daniel R. Coquillette's Anglo-American Legal History to the rare book room.  One thus can listen in, here, as Professor Coquillete explains Yearbooks and Abridgements to his class.
The Weekend Round-Up is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
