Weekend Roundup

  • From Balkinization: a glimpse of what LHB founder Mary Dudziak (Emory University) is up to (it involves "Dead People and the War Powers"). 
  • Via the Canadian Legal History Blog: the University of Manitoba Press is looking for manuscripts for its Human Rights and Social Justice Series. 
  • "For those who participate in collegiate sports, are academic scholarships a privilege or a right, a special acknowledgement of their abilities on the field or a form of compensation for service to their institutions?" And what does early American history have to do with this question? Find out over at The Junto.
  • We love Slate's The Vault for the light it shines on primary source documents. Recent posts include documents on Chinese exclusion and redlining.
  • “Teaching Latin American Legal History,” the contribution of Matthew C. Mirow, Florida International University College of Law, to Teaching Legal History: Comparative Perspectives, ed. Robert M. Jarvis (London: Wildy, Simmonds & Hill, 2014), 235-238 is here.
  • "Blackstone Goes Hollywood"? If we know our readership, this tagline from the Yale Law Library's Rare Books Blog had you at hello.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
