Weekend Roundup

  • Congratulations to Kristin Collins, Boston University Law, on her recent tenuring. As "BU Today" reports, Professor Collins's "research interests include gender and the law, legal history, federal courts, and civil procedure. Her current research focuses on the origins of family welfare policy and the legal construction of the family and gender in early 19th-century administrative law." 
  • Norman Rosenberg's H-Law review of Sarah Barringer Gordon's The Spirit of the Law: Religious Voices and the Constitution in Modern America is here.
  • Princeton's press release on "Policy Issues and Analysis of Nonprofits, NGOs and Philanthropy," a course by the legal historian Stanley Katz, is here.
  • I've previously mentioned my participation in the Miller Center of Public Affairs fellows program.  A webcast of the Spring National Fellows Conference is here.  Other mentors who commented on their fellow's work include Gerald Berk, Margot Canaday, Elisabeth Clemens, Susan Hyde, Matthew Lassiter, and Jacob Shapiro.  DRE.
The Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
