"Drawing Lines: The Future of Redistricting in America" will look forward to the major issues in redistricting as America prepares to begin the 2010 Census. The symposium will feature a number of major election law scholars, political scientists, computer scientists, and state officials examining the major questions about this and future redistricting cycles. Among the subjects: Is it possible or desirable to have an apolitical redistricting process? How will open-source computer programs change redistricting debates? And what is the future of the majority-minority district?
The symposium will feature a lunchtime keynote speech by Heather Gerken of Yale Law School.
Event hosted by the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy, and sponsored by the Program in Public Law and the American Constitution Society. For more information, contact Tobias Coleman at email@example.com.
