Jeremy Bailey of the University of Houston will present Skidmore’s first Alexander Hamilton Lecture in Constitutional Studies Tuesday, Sept. 17. Titled “Jefferson’s Revolutionary Constitution:  Paradox and Potential,” the talk will begin at 5 p.m. in the Pohndorff Room, Scribner Library. Admission is free.

Bailey is an associate professor who holds a dual appointment in Honors and Political Science at Houston. He teaches courses in U.S. politics and American political thought.

His research interests include executive power, the presidency, and American political thought and development. He is the author of Thomas Jefferson and Executive Power (2007, Cambridge University Press), and co-author of The Contested Removal Power, 1789-2013 (2013, University Press of Kansas). His work has been published in such journals as The Review of Politics, Presidential Studies Quarterly, and the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.

Baily received a B.A. degree from Rhodes College and a Ph.D. from Boston College, where his dissertation was the 2004 co-winner of the APSA’s E.E. Schattschneider Prize for best dissertation in American politics.

The Department of Government and the Alexander Hamilton Institute are sponsors of the lecture. A pocket edition of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to those attending.
