    Scientific Certainty Participants Imagining a New Constitution Participants Law s History Participants Symposia Podcasts Registration Externships Cross Disciplinary Program Lecture Podcasts Law Journals Sovereignty Emergency and Legality Sovereignty Emergency and Legality October 17 2008 The purpose of this symposium is to chart the complex interplay of sovereignty emergency and legality and to ask what we can learn about each by examining their juxtaposition For some scholars sovereignty is only truly knowable in times of emergency moments when the law is suspended put on hold Others believe that sovereign power is more malleable less absolute adaptable to constitutional democracy For these scholars sovereign power can and does operate in and through law and law in turn can be used to domesticate and direct that power While in the United States today many have turned their attention to sovereignty emergency and legality we use this symposium not just to take up today s pressing issues but also to revisit moments in our past e g the internment of Japanese Americans and the Supreme Court s Korematsu decision the civil rights movement and the decisions in Cooper v Aaron and Walker v Birmingham and to use these moments to frame the history of the present We also turn our attention to the experience of other nations e g the British in Northern Ireland the Israeli Palestinian conflict etc Drawing together historical and comparative work with the rigorous examination of sovereignty emergency and legality in the early 21st century United States will we believe provide a distinctive way of framing an ongoing and important set of theoretical and practical problems Organized by Professor Austin Sarat William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Science at Amherst and Justice Hugo L Black Visiting Senior Faculty Scholar at the University of Alabama School of Law Participants
