Thirteen AHA members were recently named to the Historians Council on the Constitution, a new initiative from the Brennan Center for Justice which “seeks to address the misuse of history in major constitutional debates.” As part of the Council’s work, Alexander Keyssar (Harvard Univ.) co-wrote an article about constitutional originalism and history; Gautham Rao (American Univ.) co-wrote an article about corporations misusing history in Supreme Court cases; Holly Brewer (Univ. of Maryland) and Rosemarie Zagarri (George Mason Univ.) participated in a Q&A on the historical dimensions of Trump’s criminal immunity defense, and Brewer served on the panel for a virtual event on the same topic.
