ASLH 2019 Program Update

Nobody's perfect and things change, even with final programs of annual meetings of learned societies.  Here are some updates that have come to our attention for the meeting of the American Society for Legal History at the Boston Park Plaza this week. We'd be happy to update this post with others.

First, one of the panels in the Authors-Meet-Readers Salon: New Books in American Legal History on Friday November 22, from 1:15 to 2:40 in the Georgian Room was omitted from the program but will take place nonetheless:
Blake Emerson’s The Public’s Law: Origins and Architecture of Progressive Democracy
Chair: Daniel Ernst, Georgetown University Law Center
Commentators: Anne Kornhauser, City University of New York; Jessica Blatt, Marymount Manhattan College; Noah Rosenblum, Columbia Law School

Author: Blake Emerson, UCLA School of Law

Second, elsewhere in the Georgian Room at the same time, Richard R. John of Columbia University joins Harvard Law’s Kenneth Mack as commentators on Legal Histories of Modern American Capitalism: Anne Fleming’s City of Debtors: A Century of Fringe Finance and Laura Phillips Sawyer’s American Fair Trade: Proprietary Capitalism, Corporatism, and the “New Competition,” 1890-1940.
