We have ONE ticket remaining for In Conversation with the Rosenbach: Judge Jed S. Rakoff, which is the first of our new Federalist Papers miniseries. In this series, legal experts will focus on a single paper from this collection and guide a group conversation about what these ideas mean for American democracy in 2018. We'll put out a few related objects from our incredible collection of Founding Fathers documents. https://rosenbach.org/calendar/the-federalist-papers-mini-series/

    The Federalist Papers mini-series
    The Framers loved juries. They put the right to trial by jury into the Constitution because "they were unwilling to trust the government" to mark it out, Justice Antonin Scalia has written. Today, fully 95 percent of state criminal cases that end in conviction are resolved without a jury, by guilty pleas.

How did hair work become so popular in the Victorian era? Mental Floss talked to "Woven Strands" co-curator, Emily Snedden Yates, about the exhibition (opening party this Thursday!) and has a sneak peek of incredible images from the exhibition. Purchase tickets to the opening here: http://ow.ly/5H7L30hKh4K!

    Mütter Museum Showcases the Victorian Custom of Making Crafts From Human Hair
    One thing that illustrated and photographic archives have taught us is that people have always known how to rock a stylish piece of headwear. From squat caps to towering toppers, history has produced a hat for every occasion. Here are 20 old styles that, with a healthy dose of fashion and confidence, could still look just as fabulous today.
