    Civic Education in a Time of Upheaval

    Friday, February 16

    8:00 – 8:30am: Breakfast for everyone and Registration for Teachers

    8:30 – 9:00am: Welcome by Dean Farnsworth and Setting the Stage by Sanford Levinson

    9:00 – 12:15pm: On "Introducing" Constitutional Law--and the Casebooks We Use to Do That. A host of editors of leading casebooks on the US Constitution will address two central questions: 1. What aspects of the Constitution should American undergraduates and/or law students be “introduced” to in 2018, given the high unlikelihood that even the law students will actually "practice" constitutional law in any capacity other than citizens? 2. What do you see as the principal point(s) of your own casebook relative to whatever answer you gave to the first question? Each person will make a short presentation, followed by presumably intense conversation including participation by the audience. There will be a brief break around 10:30 Panelists: Josh Blackman, Erwin Chemerinsky, Richard Fallon, Mark Graber, Gary Jacobsohn, Sanford Levinson, Pam Karlan, Mark Tushnet Chair: Richard Albert Location: Francis Auditorium

    1:45-2:00pm: Introduction to the general topic of civic education (and the remaining panels): Meira Levinson

    2:00 – 3:30pm: Historical Perspectives. As educators and citizens try to make sense of contemporary political and ideological divisions in the United States, it can be useful to see how educators and policy makers addressed profound division and civic upheaval in the past. This panel brings together historians of education to provide perspectives and insights into prior approaches to civic education in times of upheaval. Panelists: Jarvis Givens, Julie Reuben, Jonathan Zimmerman Chair: Lorraine Pangle Location: Sheffield-Massey Room

    3:50 – 5:35pm: Civic Education in Divided Societies. Partisanship in the United States is at higher levels than we’ve seen in decades, and increasingly tracks other divides such as education level, income, and place of residence. Not only are we more extreme in our beliefs, therefore, but we are also more likely to be disconnected from those who have different perspectives. We are not the only country to face profound civic division, however; nor is this the first time that the United States finds itself ideologically driven. This panel brings together scholars and educators who work around the globe in deeply divided countries. Panelists: Michelle Bellino, Thea Abu El-Haj, Michael Karayanni, Adam Strom Chair: Michael Stoff Location: Sheffield-Massey Room

    Saturday's Conference Schedule can be found here.

    Please RSVP to the conference, here.

    Note: Teachers can get Continuing Education credit through the State Bar of Texas. Please pre-register with the RSVP and register in front of the desk at TNH 2.111.

    Note: Teachers can get Continuing Education credit through the State Bar of Texas. Please pre-register with your RSVP.

    Saturday, February 17

    8:15 – 8:50am: Breakfast for everyone and Registration for Teachers. Location: Jamail Pavilion.

    9:00 – 10:30am: Teaching Civic Contestation in Schools. How can and should educators teach controversial issues in schools? This is a perennial question, but one that has heightened salience in these unsettled times. What principles and practices should guide educators’ choices about what to include in the curriculum, and what to leave out as either “too hot to handle” or inappropriate to be treated as something open to debate? How have educators tried to protect themselves or their students when investigating contested topics, and what happens when things go wrong?

    Panelists: Curtis Acosta, Dafney Blanca Dabach, Diana Hess

    Chair: Randall Kennedy

    10:45 – 12:15: Fault Lines in the Constitution. To the extent that the Constitution is taught in middle schools and high schools today, focus is generally placed on two areas: (1) the genius of the Framers in creating a government of divided and balanced powers, and (2) the perfection of the rights accorded to citizens, particularly those embedded in the Bill of Rights. Such anodyne and uncritical approaches to our founding document, however, diminish students' civic capacities. As the panelists will explain, celebratory approaches to teaching the Constitution are both inadequate and inaccurate. Cynthia Levinson and Sanford Levinson, authors of Fault Lines in the Constitution: The Framers, Their Fights, and the Flaws that Affect Us Today, a book for young readers, explain an alternative perspective on the Constitution, focusing on the ways that the structures of our government contribute to dysfunctionalities in American political life. In addition, an educator will provide insights into ways to make civics education more complex and comprehensive.

    Panelists: Cynthia Levinson, Sanford Levinson, Aaron Hull, Katherina Payne

    Moderator: Meira Levinson

    1:30 – 3:00: Schools as Civic Actors. Civic education is traditionally thought of as a subject (like math or science), a set of pedagogies (such as in-class discussion or action civics), or extracurricular learning opportunities (such as student government or debate). But schools also educate civically by modeling civic values and engagement themselves as civic actors. This can prove challenging when teachers, administrators, students, and parents are divided about what their obligations should be. Should schools create “sanctuary campuses” intended to disrupt the school-to-deportation pipeline? How should they respond when students stage school walkouts over civic and political issues, or when students who merely repeat politicians’ statements run afoul of anti-bullying laws? This session will immerse participants in case study discussions about how educators and policy makers are addressing schools’ responsibilities as civic actors in times of upheaval.

    More about the Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Angie Junck: The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) is a San Francisco-based nonprofit that works with and educates “immigrants, community organizations, and the legal sector to continue to build a democratic society that values diversity and the rights of all people.” Angie Junck, the ILRC’s Supervising Attorney, manages several of ILRC’s program areas, including immigration consequences of crime, immigration enforcement, and immigrant youth. She helps coordinate two national collaboratives that address the intersection of the immigration and criminal legal systems—the Defending Immigrants Project, a collaborative devoted to protecting the rights of immigrants accused of crimes by providing advocacy and support within the criminal legal system and the Immigrant Justice Network, a collaborative to eliminate unjust immigration penalties for immigrants and end the criminalization of immigrant communities. She is a Commissioner with the American Bar Association's (ABA) Immigration Commission and is the co-chair of the Immigration Committee of the ABA's Criminal Justice Section.

    The “Lives in the Law” speaker series focuses on the work and lives of lawyers who strive to improve the lives of others through litigation, advocacy and public service.

    Women in Law Institute

    Described by one partner at a top law firm as “the most practical tool I’ve encountered in my 20 years of practicing,” the Women in Law Institute is an all-day, intensive workshop for law students, judicial clerks, and LL.M.’s. Participants can look forward to expert presentations on the essential skills for navigating a successful career in law: effective communication, self-promotion, and networking. Following each lecture, students work in small groups led by distinguished practitioners (3:1 ratio) to perfect these skills through practice and individualized critiques in a supportive environment.

    Guantánamo: Seeing into the Dark Archive

    Mary Marshall Clark, Director of the Center for Oral History Research at Columbia University, will explore the ethical, legal and constitutional issues that have arisen since the designation of Guantánamo Bay as a site of incarceration and torture for people suspected of terrorism against the United States, following the events of September 11, 2001. In 2008 the Center for Oral History Research at Columbia University developed a large-scale oral history project on the legal, political, ethical and moral consequences of the US sanctioning of this prison. The crisis engendered deep conversations on the consequences of the loss of habeas corpus, the implementation of sustained torture that was visible for the world to see, and the corruption of ethical associations such as the American Psychological Association through its support of government psychologists who contributed to the enhancement of torture techniques, as was revealed in our interviews and later made public by New York Times journalist James Risen. Reflecting on the creation of this ‘dark archive’ made up of over 350 hours of conversation with advocacy lawyers, judges, journalists, psychologists and former prisoners, I will attempt to answer the questions: 1) Why is oral history essential to understanding the disruptions of democracy, as well as its achievements? 2) How can the ‘archive’ represent those who are unseen and unheard, blindfolded from themselves and from us? And what is our role in interpreting the stories we collect and share? 3) What are the implications of constructing an archive on torture, in the country that has legitimized it?

    Sponsored by the Archive and Human Rights Working Group with support from the Rapoport Center for Human Rights, LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections, Department of English, and Ellen Clayton Garwood Centennial Professorship in English.
