Vincent Phillip Muñoz : The Warren Court & Progressivism | BRI Scholar Talks

BRI Senior Teaching Fellow Tony Williams is joined by Dr. Vincent Phillip Muñoz,
author and Tocqueville Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame,
to discuss the Warren Court. Muñoz gives detailed accounts of the most significant Supreme Court
cases of the period and explains how they reflected a time of judicial activism and progressivism
for civil liberties against a backdrop of the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. How did
Court advance the incorporation doctrine at this time? And how did the Warren Court shape the
principle of federalism in the present day?
