Foley Distinguished Lecture: Constitutional Crisis

About the event

Join us in Spark G45 Auditorium for a Foley Distinguished Lecture with Keith Whittington, where he will discuss constitutional crises both real and imagined.

Over the past several decades, American political rhetoric has been increasingly filled with cries of constitutional crisis, and such worries have only increased since the 2016 elections. What does constitutional crisis mean, and how would we know if we are in one?

Keith Whittington is professor of politics at Princeton University. He is the author of numerous award-winning books, including most recently Speak Freely: Why Universities Must Defend Free Speech.
