This month HumanistsMN welcomes political science and law scholar Timothy Johnson to help us understand the implications of the current U.S. Supreme Court. The Roberts Court has overturned the constitutional right to abortion and issued rulings that erode the separation of religion and government. It is considered the most conservative Supreme Court in history. Is this true?

How does this era compare to past eras? What did the Court do in the 2021 term and what can we expect next term? This talk answers these questions and more.

All are welcome! Childcare available upon request by Tuesday, October 11th. (Contact editor@humanistsmn.org.) Join us at 3pm for coffee, introductions, and announcements. Our featured presentation begins at 3:15pm with discussion to follow. At 4:30 we’ll break for socializing over nibbles and drinks.

Timothy R. Johnson is Horace T. Morse Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Law at the University of Minnesota. He has published several books about the U.S. Supreme Court, including Oral Arguments and Coalition Formation on the U.S. Supreme Court, A Good Quarrel, and Oral Arguments and Decision Making on the U.S. Supreme Court. He has also published more than forty articles and chapters in a variety of academic journals and his research has been funded six times by the National Science Foundation. Along with legal and political commentary, Johnson’s work has been covered by a host of national and international media outlets.
