Fordham Symposium on New Originalism

The Fordham Law Review is hosting a symposium titled The New Originalism in Constitutional Law on March 1, 2013.  Details are here.

The schedule includes an all-star line-up.  Here's the description:

Originalism--the thesis that legitimate constitutional interpretation is bound by original meaning or intent--has emerged as an influential and controversial approach to how we interpret our Constitution.  While some claim that constitutional interpretation and legitimacy require unearthing the original meaning or intent, others assert that tethering current citizens and interpreters to the comprehension of long-dead people is the antithesis of good and proper democratic government.

The Fordham Law Review is proud to present a symposium gathering a remarkable group of legal scholars, historians, and philosophers to discuss if, how, and why Originalism should inform constitutional analysis.
