Weekend Roundup

  •  From Rachel Hermann over at The Junto: "Evolution of an Article" (or, as she later puts it, a "thrilling romp through the wild and tangled forests of peer review"). Lots of good tips for junior scholars, including "A dissertation chapter is not a book chapter! And a book chapter is not an article!" and, my favorite, "This. Sh-t. Takes. Time." [KMT (alteration mine)]
  • Via the Legal Scholarship Blog, word that former guest blogger Sophia Lee (University of Pennsylvania) presented a paper titled "Barnette and the First Amendment Right to Privacy" to the University of Texas faculty workshop.  
  • At a town hall meeting on Tuesday, April 5, at 2 p.m. in the University at Buffalo Law School, New Yorkers turn to the constitutional historian Peter J. Galie, professor emeritus in political science at Canisius College, among others, for insight into the November 2017 referendum on whether to convene a constitutional convention.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
