Annual Constiution Day lecture to feature political science professor from Germany


Michael Dreyer, professor at Friedrich-Schiller Universitat in Jena, Germany has been invited to conduct the 2017 Constitution Day lecture at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25 in the Charles V. Park Library Auditorium.

The lecture titled, “Interpreting the Constitution: The Supreme Court and Judicial Review as a model for the world?” is sponsored by the Department of History and Department of Political Science within the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences. 

Dreyer teaches political theory at Frederich-Schiller Universitat. In his teaching, he focuses mainly on the United States Supreme Court and the U.S. Constitution.

Dreyer was chosen to speak by Kathleen Donohue, a faculty member in the history department at Central Michigan University. 

Donohue said she chose Dreyer because she thought he could provide an interesting perspective of the American political system, since he lives outside the U.S.

“Anybody who is interested in citizenship and politics should attend,” Donohue said. “As well as those looking at careers in law and politics.”

The event is free and open to the public.
