What WERE the Founders Thinking?
Co-sponsored by Voices from the Prairie and The Princeton Public Library, with support from the Interactivity Foundation and Midwest Partners
Presented by Amanda Cook Fesperman, IVCC Political Science and History professor. The Constitution is often treated like a sacred document that should be literally interpreted and rarely amended. However, the Constitution emerged as a compromise among competing interests on a variety of issues. Issues that still resonate with us today; Equal Representation in the Senate, the Electoral College, Term Limits, The Power of the President, The Times, Place and Manner Clause, and winner-take-all elections.
This is the first of four programs on the United States Constitution. Click here to see a full listing.
