Weekend Roundup

  • Do you know about Founders Online, maintained by the National Archives?  H/t: Matt Steilen.
  • Here's a useful thread on dissertation prizes, including the Cromwell Prize in legal history.
  • At the Washington University St. Louis, Rebecca Wanzo, professor and chair of the Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in Arts & Sciences, will be teaching Politics of Reproduction, an interdisciplinary course that will "explore topics including reproductive health, law, disability, economics, film, politics, reproductive justice and religion through a series of in-person events and public webinars."
  • We recently noted the Notice & Comment symposium on Bill Novak's New Democracy. Since that posting, additional commentaries have gone up, by Ganesh Sitaraman (Vanderbilt University Law School), Christoper J. Walker (University of Michigan School of Law), Orly Lobel (University of San Diego), and Jane Manners (Temple University Beasley School of Law). Stay tuned for another mini-symposium on the book soon, in the Law & History Review's online companion (The Docket).
  • “18 Civil War historians and professors of legal history disputed [Students for Fair Admissions’] “erroneous” claim that the 14th Amendment prohibits any consideration of race in admissions policies” in their amicus brief in Students for Fair Admissions vs. Harvard University (Harvard Gazette).

Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
