Weekend Roundup

  • A new issue (2:1) of The Docket–the online sidekick of Law and History Review–has gone live.  Check it out! 
  • The American Council of Learned Societies has announced its fellows for 2019, among them Laura Edwards (for “Only the Clothes on Her Back: Textiles, Law, and Commerce in the Nineteenth-Century United States”); Amanda H. Frost (for “Unmaking Americans: A History of Citizenship Stripping in the United States”); Katherine Unterman (for "The Colonial Constitution: Law and Empire in the US Territories”); and Kimberly Welch (for “Lending and Borrowing Across the Color Line in the Antebellum American South”).
  • Here’s some timely and unfortunately apt comparative constitutionalism: Lénárd Sándor, Chief Counsel to the Constitutional Court of Hungary and, currently, a visiting foreign fellow at the Federal Judicial Center, in conversation with Jeffrey Rosen.
  • And, in other news from the FJC, check out the most recent addition to the Center's unit to our Famous Federal Trials series, U.S. v. Guiteau, written by Winston Bowman.
  • Postdoc opportunity at McGill's Indian Ocean World Centre: details here. The deadline is May 15, 2019.
  • Also for early career scholars: Oxford's Centre for Socio-Legal Studies has a Call out for a "Law in Context" Early Career Workshop. Those applications are due July 10, 2019.
   Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
