Teaching American History Presents by TeachingAmericanHistory.org

Episode notes

Join our scholars on a Saturday morning for a moderated conversation about interposition and the ways in which it can complicate the relationship between state and federal governments.

Today's question: To what extent does the U.S. Constitution permit state officials to question the legitimacy of federal laws and take actions that defy these laws?

Teaching American History’s Saturday webinar series provides educators with a chance to participate in a text-based roundtable discussion of American history and politics. For the 2022-2023 season we’ve chosen to highlight controversial topics from America’s past. These webinars are open to social studies, history, government, civics and humanities educators.
