Mr. Stone is the Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago and is the author and co-author of many books on constitutional law. His newest, Sex and the Constitution, explores the history of sex, religion, law, and constitutional law from the ancient world to the present, and has been praised as “a treasure-house of … legal and historical insight – not to mention erotic delights!”
Sex, Religion, and Law From America’s Origins to the Twenty-First Century
At SFS17 Stone will speak about the role American constitutional law has played in contemporary debates over all manner of sexual mores: obscenity, contraception, abortion, and homosexuality. These issues have been at the core of what Stone deems a “constitutional revolution,” and will likely remain controversial topics under the new administration and given the current and potential future line-up of the Supreme Court.
Don’t miss this wide-ranging conversation on the past, present, and future of sex, the role of the Court, and the evolution of constitutional law. Join us for our keynote session Friday, August 4th!
See you at the Summit!
