Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO, of the National Constitution Center, will discuss his new book, “Constitution 3.0: Freedom and Technological Change” at 4:30 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall. A book sale and signing and public reception will follow the discussion in Shultz Dining Room.

The National Constitution Center is the first and only nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to the most powerful vision of freedom ever expressed: the U.S. Constitution. Rosen is a professor at The George Washington University Law School, where he has taught since 1997, and is the legal affairs editor of The New Republic, which covers politics and culture from an “unbiased and thought-provoking perspective.” He is a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, where he explores issues involving the future of technology and the Constitution.

Rosen’s  essays and commentaries have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, on National Public Radio, and in The New Yorker, where he has been a staff writer. The Chicago Tribune named him one of the 10 best magazine journalists in America.  He received the 2012 Golden Pen Award from the Legal Writing Institute for his “extraordinary contribution to the cause of better legal writing.”
