Weekend Roundup

Harold Leventhal, J.
  • A report of the session of the Washington History Seminar, heralded here, devoted to David Armitage and Jo Guldi’s History Manifesto
  • Every since my first time as a "dream mentor" in the National Fellowship program of the Miller Center for Public Affairs at the University of Virginia, I've followed the Center's annual fellows' conference with interest.  The schedule for this year's, to be held May 7-8, is here.
  • Over at the Faculty Lounge, Al Brophy hits the sweet spot--trusts and estates and the history of slavery--in commenting on L'Affaire Affleck.
  • Over at New Books in History, Ellen Boucher discusses her Empire's Children: Child Emigration, Welfare, and the Decline of the British World, 1869-1967 (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
