The second annual Open Classroom Series continues at Barrington Public Library with lectures from university professors about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The series runs Thursdays at 7 PM through April 11, 2013.
Each week a visiting professor lectures for 45 minutes to an hour with additional time for questions and answers. Explore the articles and amendments with the guidance of scholars and find out what they mean in today’s society and for our current government.
Upcoming speakers include professors Diana Hassell of Roger Williams University, Michael Vorenberg of Brown University and June Speakman also of Roger Williams University. Lectures include time for Q & A. Be sure to join us on March 28th for a lecture on State's Rights: How the 10th Amendment Has Been Interpreted, April 4th for the topic of Slavery & Citizenship and again on April 11th for the topic of The Right to Vote.
