LAPA Hosts Conference in Honor of Stan Katz

News items for launch:On February 23-24, 2007 the Program in Law & Public Affairs, the Woodrow Wilson School, the History Department, and the American Studies Department of Princeton University held “A Conference in Honor of Stan Katz: Teacher, Scholar, Citizen.” The conference was planned by a committee of colleagues and former students of Stan.  It included a mix of formal and informal sessions on those themes that have been important in Stan’s professional life.  Panels explored topics in public policy, colonial history, American legal history, the history of nonprofits and philanthropy, the use of technology in teaching and scholarship, and the public humanities – all areas where Stan's work has made important contributions.  The papers were presented by students of Stan or long-time friends and colleagues.  The conference ended with Stan's presentation of an "Intellectual Autobiography".  Each session was designed to allow a maximum of participation by the audience, almost all of whom were students, friends, and colleagues of Stan. The program, the tribute to Stan, a family slide show and videos of all the panels are (or will soon be) available at the Katz conference archive page.
