Constitution and Compromise
Prof. Scott Cook, Associate Professor of History

Each presented selected interpretations of Constitutional themes.  The presentations were all very good, although I have to admit that I was not 100% sure where some of the speakers stood on their issue by the end of the day. I think that would have been more clear had there been more time for questions at the end. . I hesitate to add any discussion about the event because I was not able to take good notes. I would not wish to make assumptions or to misquote. I will simply say that I enjoyed the fact that there were a variety of views presented. I hope that next time they will allow for more discussion afterwards. The next time I attend an event I will take my mini recorder so that will be better able to share more about the event with you.
