Conference on families, fundamentalism, & the First Amendment in November at William & Mary Law School

(Williamsburg, VA) - The Institute of Bill of Rights Law at William & Mary Law School will bring together scholars with expertise in the First Amendment; family and juvenile law; and law, religion, and culture at a conference, Nov. 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. in room 124, William & Mary Law School.  Registration is free and all are welcome.

The symposium will explore ways in which fundamentalism forces an examination of some of the American polity‚Äôs core values:  commitments to pluralism, religious liberty, and individual self-determination; repudiation of gender-based oppression; and ensuring the well-being of children and future citizens.

Participants will include William & Mary Law faculty, James Dwyer and  William Van Alstyne in addition to Randall Balmer (Barnard/Columbia); Emily Buss (University of Chicago); Naomi Cahn (George Washington); June Carbone (University of Missouri-Kansas City); Fred Gedicks (Brigham Young); Marci Hamilton (Cardozo); Vivian Hamilton (William & Mary); Andrew Koppelman (Northwestern); Catherine Ross (George Washington); John Taylor (West Virginia); and Robin Fretwell Wilson (Washington & Lee).

Papers from the symposium will be published in the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal.
