On the LHB Facebook Page: Welcome Winston Bowman and Colin Wilder

I am pleased to announce the Legal History Blog’s new Facebook administrators, Winston Bowman and Colin Wilder.  Winston and Colin will be helping with the daily administration of the blog’s Facebook page.  

Winston Bowman is a fourth year PhD candidate in the History Department at Brandeis where he studies American legal history.  Winston’s dissertation is a history of federal jurisdiction since the Civil War.  He has a JD from Boston University and experience as a litigator.  This semester Winston is teaching a course at Brandeis on “The Warren Court and Social Justice.”

Colin Wilder is a legal historian of early modern Europe and is currently working on a book manuscript on “Property and the German Idea of Freedom, 1648-1806.”  He recently received his PhD from the University of Chicago and is a Solmsen Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Institute for Research in the Humanities.

Thanks and welcome to Colin and Winston!
