1619-Present -- 11/12/20 Daypass -- Reconstruction and the 1619 Project
Speaker: Professor Pamela Brandwein, Department of Political Science, University of Michigan Pamela Brandwein’s research and teaching interests include constitutional law and politics; race, politics, and civil rights; and American political development. A specialist in the law and politics of Reconstruction, her most recent book, Rethinking the Judicial Settlement of Reconstruction (Cambridge, 2011), revises conventional wisdom about the Supreme Court’s settlement of Reconstruction. She has twice been honored to deliver Leon Silverman lectures at the U.S. Supreme Court. Speaker’s Synopsis: This presentation will offer a view of Reconstruction as it relates to the 1619 Project. Framing Reconstruction as a struggle to reconceive the nation, the lecture will cover the Union coalition; the multiple versions of antislavery; the “language” of race and rights; points of consensus and division in the post-war Republican Party; the Reconstruction Amendments and their early judicial interpretation; the roles of violence and economic depression in the defeat of Reconstruction; and the multiple legacies of Reconstruction.
