Blogger posing as scholar alert

The Claremont Institute is coming to Washington, D.C. Beginning tomorrow and extending through Saturday, it is putting on nine panels on an assortment of political issues. Most of the events will take place at the Wardman Park Marriott hotel. Here is the schedule. These panels are part of a larger get-together, the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association.
I will participate on two panels. The first (tomorrow at 10:15 a.m.) focuses on Justice Thomas, particularly his thinking with respect to (a) looking to foreign law for constitutional guidance and (b) the Establishment Clause. Professors Jeremy Rabkin and Vincent Phillip Munoz, respectively, will discuss papers they have written on these topics. I will provide comments. Then, on Friday at 10:15 a.m., Scott and I will participate, along with Bill Gertz of the Washington Times and Nina Easton of the Boston Globe, in a discussion on blogging and politics.
On Saturday, Scott will appear on a panel about Woodrow Wilson. The discussion will revolve around R.J. Pestritto’s new book Woodrow Wilson and the Roots of Modern Liberalism, which Scott tells me is one of the best pieces of intellectual history he has ever read.
