The Tea Party and Constitutional Nationalism.

Start/End Tuesday, April 01, 2014 12:10 PM EDT -- 01:10 PM EDT
Location Name JG 101

Please join ACS as we host Jared Goldstein, Professor at the Roger Williams Law School. Prof. Goldstein will trace the roots of the Tea Party's constitutional ideology, which he will assert teaches that the Constitution embodies a fixed and narrow set of values that define the American character, and that deviations from those values are un-American and unconstitutional. Prof. Goldstein will also argue that the movement has succeeded in bringing mainstream respectability to this rhetoric that has long flourished on the margins. Contact: Nina Hart, nmh2132@columbia.edu
