Conferences

Since its inception in early 2019, the Center has held numerous conferences, symposia, workshops, colloquia, and other gatherings. Many of those events have generated articles published in law reviews, and others have led to essay collections that we have published on the Center’s blog, Second Thoughts. This page does not have every panel discussion the Center has hosted, but just the ones for which participants produced written products. Our Videos page has the recordings for all Center discussion panels and other events that were recorded, including those that did not produce writings.

Below are links to the presentations, articles, and blog posts that have arisen from these large Center-sponsored events.
