Weekend Roundup

  • The American Society for Legal History's illustrated report of its annual meeting is now up on the ASLH website.  
  • Via Duke Today, a report on “the three-day symposium ‘Global Slaveries/Impossible Freedoms,’ celebrating the legacies of John Hope Franklin.”
  • We’re afraid there’s no ungated draft of the actual paper, but we note anyway that former guest blogger Mitra J. Sharafi, University of Wisconsin Law School, has posted the abstract for her essay South Asian Legal History, which appears in Annual Review of Law and Social Science 11 (2015): 309-36.
  • Campbell Law School dedicated the exhibit First Ladies of the North Carolina Judiciary, which contains rare archival and photographic exhibits, and chronicles the first N.C. women to break a number of judicial barriers, starting with Chief Justice Susie Sharp’s 1949 appointment as a superior court judge.” At right, former N.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker (and Micah 6:8). 
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
