Legal History and Originalism: Rethinking the Special Relationship

Date limite le mercredi 20 décembre 2017

Law and History Review, a leading journal of legal history published by Cambridge University Press for the American Society for Legal History, seeks article proposals for a special volume entitled "Legal History and Originalism: Rethinking the Special Relationship."  In the past thirty years, the method of constitutional interpretation known as originalism has taken center stage in the legal academy and the broader universe of American jurisprudence.  To a great extent, originalism draws its power from its use of history as a lens to make sense of contemporary legal problems.  Powerful legal opinions by originalist judges and justices write their own legal histories while leaning heavily on leading works of legal history.  Because of the prominence of originalism in American law, we believe it is a proper time to critically assess the scholarly underpinnings of originalist theory and practice.  We therefore seek articles of original research that explore the relationship between originalism and the field of legal history, broadly construed.

Proposals should be no more than a one single-spaced page, including footnotes, and should explain the topic and argument of an article that would be 5,000 words, including notes.

The due date for proposals is December 20th, 2017.  Authors will be notified of the status of their proposal by January 15th, 2017.  Articles will be due in December, 2018.  Proposals should be emailed as attachments (.PDF or .DOC) to the Editor-in-Chief of Law and History Review, Gautham Rao at Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.
