Weekend Roundup

  • Columbia University’s Center for American Studies recently hosted “Charles Beard at 100," a roundtable in honor of the centennial of Beard’s An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United State. The Junto has posted a recap here.  
  • From Joseph J. Thorndike and the folks at Tax Analysts, a short movie on the centennial of the Sixteenth Amendment.  We loved its opening: "Did you know it's the one hundred year anniversary of the federal income tax?  Neither did I."
  • From the Wellesley Centers for Women "Women = Books" blog: Felicia Kornbluh argues that "the history of AIDS/ HIV is being mottled and shorn of its political meaning." 
  • Welcome to the Blogosphere to SupremeBystander, “government, constitutional, and legal prose for the judiciously curious."
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
