LevinsonFest on Constitutional Faith and Veneration

Guest Blogger

Ashley Moran

I’m very pleased to share a riveting set of essays from our recent LevinsonFest 2022 roundtable on constitutional faith and veneration.

The roundtable includes essays from William Blake (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) on constitutional faith in the people who are constituted, Andrea Katz (Washington University in St. Louis) on the need for more than judicial constitutional development, John Dinan (Wake Forest University) on the decline of one mechanism of democratic constitutional development—state constitutional conventions, Brian Christopher Jones (University of Sheffield) on the value of brevity in constitutional design, Aziz Rana (Cornell University) on how W.E.B. Du Bois informs this debate, and Sandy Levinson (University of Texas at Austin) bridging these themes in assessing the future of constitutional faith.

The event recording is also available on the panel webpage. We hope you enjoy the discussions!
