Higher Law And Lincoln's Antislavery Constitutionalism: What It Means To Say The Civil War Was Fought Over Slavery, Joel A. Rogers 2023 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Higher Law And Lincoln's Antislavery Constitutionalism: What It Means To Say The Civil War Was Fought Over Slavery, Joel A. Rogers

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The US Civil War was fought over slavery. But what do we really mean when we say that? This paper examines that question, first by exploring the idea of “higher law,” which gained tremendous traction in American society starting around 1850. Proponents of the idea claimed that laws such as the Fugitive Slave Act are immoral; that the immorality of such laws is self-evident, and that such immoral laws should be resisted—sometimes even with violence. Meanwhile, opponents of the idea of higher law were not necessarily in favor of slavery, but they opposed the use of extra-Constitutional means to bring …


Intersections Of Violence Against Immigrant Women On The United States-Mexico Border, Holland Morgan 2023 West Chester University

Intersections Of Violence Against Immigrant Women On The United States-Mexico Border, Holland Morgan

Ramifications

There have been growing tensions along the United States-Mexico border over the last twenty years and the very unique position of Mexican immigrant women is largely ignored. With the increased militarization of the border to protect American land from people considered ‘illegal’, this has left immigrant women vulnerable to gendered violence from border officials; as well as state systems that silence their voices or persecute them for their undocumented status.

The Napoleonic Code: Property, Succession, And Gender, Deanna Small 2022 University of Minnesota - Morris

The Napoleonic Code: Property, Succession, And Gender, Deanna Small

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

Through an investigation of excerpt of the 1804 Napoleonic Code, this paper explores the way the law impacted inheritance, property laws, and women's place in the law in Napoleonic France. These laws shaped the legal system for years to come and aimed to create an image of France that fit with Napoleon’s vision. This paper alongside an annotated copy of excerpts of the Code presents a focused investigation of the language of the law and the various ways laws were actually practiced or circumscribed by French citizens.
