Childress Lecture 2013
Childress Memorial Lecture: Who Counts?
November 1, 2013
John K. Pruellage Courtroom
This year's Childress Program will address generally who is to be counted as a member of the American political community. Professor Sanford V. Levinson, the W. St. John Garwood and W. St. John Garwood, Jr. Centennial Chair at the University of Texas School of Law and Professor of Government at the University of Texas at Austin and a leading scholar of constitutional law, will address this question by examining controversies from various periods of the history of the United States to the present. Following the keynote address, two panels of leading scholars will comment on Professor Levinson's lecture, or will discuss other themes relating to who counts in American politics. This year's Childress Program is also a part of an inaugural year of events celebrating the new downtown location of the law school and the first year of the deanship of Mike Wolff, a long-time faculty member and former judge on the Missouri Supreme Court.
