The Jewish Constitutional Moment

Mon, Apr 1, 2019, 4:30 pm

The Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) presents a seminar with William E. Forbath, "The Jewish Constitutional Moment" on Monday, April 1, 2019 at 4:30 pm.

William E. Forbath is among the nation’s leading legal and constitutional historians. His books include Law and the Shaping of the American Labor Movement and the forthcoming The Anti-Oligarchy Constitution. He has written dozens of articles, book chapters and essays on subjects including political, social and economic inequality in American constitutional thought and politics – past, present, and future; social and economic rights in the courts, state institutions and social movements of the Southern Hemisphere.  At LAPA, Forbath is pursuing research in Jews, law, and identity politics in the early twentieth century.

LAPA’s seminar format encourages attendees to familiarize themselves with the paper in advance. A commentator opens the session by summarizing the main themes in the paper and presenting some topics for discussion. Copies of the seminar paper are typically available about 10 days before the event, during regular business hours, at the LAPA Offices on the 3rd floor of Wallace Hall.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information: Contact Judi Rivkin,
