Daphna Renan is a law professor at Harvard who writes about presidential power and American constitutional democracy. At Radcliffe, she will collaborate with Nikolas Bowie on a nonfiction book that contests judicial supremacy—the idea that the Supreme Court should have the final say on what the US Constitution allows—and recovers a countervailing tradition rooted in the political constitutionalism of antislavery abolitionism and Reconstruction in which the American people, speaking through Congress, can define the Constitution democratically.
