Institute for Constitutional History Fall Seminar: Bureaucracy and the ConstitutionHistorians in the News
tags: constitutional history, bureaucracy, Seminars, Administrative State
How has the role of government in everyday life changed throughout our nation's history? Today, a deep and historically inflected debate is raging over the legitimacy of American bureaucracy. As context for that controversy, this seminar will trace the constitutional history of the U.S. administrative state, starting with the Founding and the early Republic and moving through the Civil War and Reconstruction; the Progressive Era; and the rise and fall of the New Deal order. The seminar will trace evolution in the separation of powers, focusing on the development of federal regulatory power, legislative delegations of authority to the bureaucracy, and struggles over political control of administrators.
The New-York Historical Society's Bonnie and Richard Reiss Graduate Institute for Constitutional History (ICH) announces the 2022 Seminar. This fall's seminar will trace the constitutional history of the U.S. administrative state, starting with the Founding and the early Republic and moving through the Civil War and Reconstruction; the Progressive Era; and the rise and fall of the New Deal order.
