Weekend Roundup

  • Congratulations to Honor Sachs, University of Colorado at Boulder, upon her naming as a National Humanities Center fellow for her project, “Freedom by a Judgment: The Legal History of an Afro-Indian Family.”  H/t: Chronicle of Higher Education
  • We were intrigued by a report of the publication of “A Guide to Researching Land in Oklahoma at the Oklahoma Historical Society,” by Katie Bush, a research librarian at the Oklahoma History Center.  According to The Oklahoman, the guide “condenses Oklahoma land history to the basics, from the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 to the Free Homes Act of 1900.”
  • The SEC Historical Society has archived a podcast of a Roundtable of SEC Enforcement Directors, held on April 3 at Georgetown Law.  “Dr. Harwell Wells, Professor, Temple University Beasley School of Law, discusses key issues and challenges that occurred during the tenures of current Enforcement Division co-directors, Stephanie Avakian and Steven Peikin, and former division directors Andrew J. Ceresney, Stephen Cutler, Robert Khuzami, Gary Lynch, William McLucas, Stanley Sporkin, Linda Thomsen, and Richard Walker.”  Topic include “the origins of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the development of insider trading, and the impact of technology on the markets and the retail investor.”
  • Via H-Law, we have the CFP for "A Century of Internationalisms: The Promise and Legacies of the League of Nations."
  • The remaining, May 2018, sessions in the “Uma Justiça para o Século XXI” at THD-ULisboa are listed here.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
