The Warren Court of the 1950s and 1960s was the most liberal Supreme Court in American history. Yet within a few short years, new appointments shifted the court in a more conservative direction. Historian Laura Kalman will explore the court's shift and the fierce ideological battles of the late 1960s and early 1970s that reframed the Warren Court’s work in a negative light. She will also examine how the events of the 1960s and 1970s still impact the U.S. Supreme Court today.

Laura Kalman is a history professor at the University of California-Santa Barbara and author of The Long Reach of the Sixties: LBJ, Nixon, and the Making of the Contemporary Supreme Court.

Lectures are offered at 10 am and 2 pm.
