Special Conference Opportunity: Interested in Learning more about the Bill of Rights?

We are excited to announce that we are offering a new opportunity for participants at this year’s conference! We are partnering with TeachingAmericanHistory.org to provide 30 participants with the opportunity to attend the Bill of Rights seminar on February 8th. We are offering this extended session from 8:30 to 3:00 where participants will be lead through document analysis and discussion by a Bill of Rights scholar. This session is included with your registration but only available for the first 30 participants that register using the link below. Registration deadline is January 10th, document packs will be mailed to participants in advance so there is time to prepare for the seminar.

TeachingAmericanHistory.org Seminar on The Bill of Rights: Using primary source documents, this discussion-based seminar will examine the origin and creation of the Bill of Rights. Documents used in the seminar will cover the colonial and revolutionary understanding of rights, the debate over the need for a Bill of Rights during the process of ratifying the constitution, and the framing of the Bill of rights in the first Congress. Each participant will receive a hard copy of The Ashbrook Center Core Document Collection volume on The Bill of Rights in addition to the coursepack. Registration is limited to 30 attendees.
