“Disaffection with the U.S. Constitution”
Friday, September 16, 12 p.m.
310 University Center
Sanford Levinson has argued the Constitution is fundamentally undemocratic and in need of revision. Levinson’s call for a new constitutional convention has been dismissed as fanciful by many critics. However, recent public opinion data reveal support for constitutional change is higher than one may expect. The desire to change the political process has also fueled insurgent presidential candidates in both party primaries this year. Levinson considers what Americans really think about their Constitution and the American body politic.
This event is free and open to the public.
