Joanna Dunlap Cowden Memorial Lecture - Inscribing a Modern World: Constitutions Across Borders Since 1750
The spread of political constitutions around the world since the 18th century is usually linked to a notion of the inexorable rise of democracy and studied only with regard to particular nation-states.
It is also generally looked at in isolation from other forms of literature. Linda Colley, the Shelby M. C. Davis 1958 Professor of History at Princeton University, re-examines the contagion of constitutions across continents and its meanings. She also questions the future of this genre in a world where human relationships with words and print are dramatically shifting.
