Weekend Roundup

  • The National History Center of the American Historical Association is launching an initiative entitled Historians on the Hill.  It aims to identify Congressional staffers who hold history degrees.  The Center asks history degree-holders currently working on Capitol Hill to complete this survey.
  • If you're interested in originalism, follow the link to the judicial politics blog Balls and Strikes, where Calvin TerBeek has used Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions to reflect on the health of the originalist project (spoiler alert: he says it's doomed).
  •  Via the New York Times: A new report by the the Equal Justice Initiative will change how we understand the history of lynchings in the U.S. (Hat tip: Torts Today)
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
