Faculty Colloquium - Calvin Johnson

Speaker:

What Caused the Constitution?

The colloquium will address what is traditionally a historian’s question, that is, cause, that is, what caused the Constitution. The proximate cause of the Constitution was the vetoes by RI and then by New York of proposals to allow national custom duties (the “impost”). “Impost Begat Convention” looks at the New York ratification debate as a synecdoche for the Constitution's adoption as a whole. The five-page paper, Why the Constitution Should Not be Adopted, rejects Charles Beard’s argument that the Constitution was adopted to suppress paper money and suppress uprisings like Shays’ Rebellion. Sandy Levinson will provide a response. I hope to provoke a discussion as to why Beard continues to be attractive to some, and why causes of the Constitution matter to lawyers.
