Charles Jacobs, assistant professor of political science, has been invited to participate in the Interdisciplinary Summer Workshop for College Instructors sponsored by the Institute for Constitutional History program in partnership with Yale Law School. The summer workshop will take place at Yale in July in Jacobs's hometown of New Haven, Conn. The summer workshop is made possible by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The Interdisciplinary Summer Workshop is designed for college-level instructors who now teach or plan to teach undergraduate courses in constitutional studies, including constitutional history, constitutional law, and related subjects. The summer workshop focuses on the question "How does law change?" by discussing several debates that share the common research goal of trying to explain how the evolution of constitutional and other forms of legal change. Workshop leaders are David Fontana, associate professor of law at George Washington University Law School, and Steven Teles, associate professor of political science at Johns Hopkins University.
