Political Science expert Stanley Brubaker will deliver a lecture entitled "A Constitution to Die For? Congressional Power to Raise an Army and a Navy" on Friday, May 5 at 2:00 p.m., in the Adams Hall Davidson Lecture Room at Claremont McKenna College. A reception with refreshments will follow at 3:30 in Pitzer Hall.
Stanley Brubaker is professor of political science at Colgate University where he teaches courses in Public Law, American Government and Political Theory. His work has appeared in such journals as the Public Interest, Commentary, the American Political Science Review, Constitutional Commentary, and the Journal of Politics. He is the recipient of the APSA's Edward S. Corwin Award for best dissertation in public law, an Earhart Foundation award, and two NEH Fellowships Brubaker's lecture will be based on a chapter of his forthcoming book, The Constitution of Self-Government, and will examine whether the natural rights foundation of American constitutionalism supports the authority of the federal government to conscript its citizens to fight its wars.
