The University of Virginia School of Law, in conjunction with the Miller Center, invites proposals for a day-long symposium to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the publication of Charles Beard’s An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States, to be held on October 24, 2013. Papers might address An Economic Interpretation as a historical work, its significance for modern studies of the Constitution and American politics, or the general idea of constitutional veneration. Comparative projects are welcome. Our goal is a vigorous, provocative, and interdisciplinary discussion, in a roundtable atmosphere. In this spirit we encourage submission of papers that are speculative or in an early stage of development, and from various areas of study, including history, law, and political science.
One-page proposals and a short CV should be submitted to Jessica Lowe (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mark Graber (MGraber@law.umaryland.edu) by July 10, 2013.
