Today I have the pleasure of giving a keynote address on the Supreme Court at Christopher Newport University on the 15th anniversary of its Center on American Studies. I will be speaking at 4:30 and the keynote is entitled “Dangerous Times for the “Least Dangerous Branch”: The Supreme Court in the Age of Rage.” I will later give a dinner address on “Free speech and Higher Education: The Struggle Over Viewpoint Diversity on College Campuses.”
Speakers at the conference will also include
Harvey Klehr, Andrew W. Mellon Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, Emory University
Bonnie Snyder, Former Director of K-12 Programs at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
Mark Bauerlein, Senior Editor at First Things, Professor Emeritus of English at Emory University
Keith Whittington, William E. Nelson Professor of Politics, Princeton University
Akhil Reed Amar, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University
It is an honor to appear with these distinguished speakers.
I have previously spoken at CNU and have been impressed by the incredible growth of this vibrant university. This is a special and positive academic environment. I have always been impressed with the close relationship of faculty to the students and the high level of energy and engagement at the university.
It is a great pleasure to return to Christopher Newport University today.
