Rosenblum in InterDisciplines Journal of History and Sociology

Warren Rosenblum, professor of History, Politics, and International Relations in the College of Arts & Sciences, has an article, “Serene Justitia and the Passions of the Public Sphere,” in the current issue of InterDisciplines Journal of History and Sociology.

From the abstract

"The image of justice as the triumph of reason over emotion legitimized state power in nineteenth century Germany. The allegorical figure of a serene and blindfolded Justitia embodied a promise of rationality and fairness for all citizens, regardless of politics, class, race or religion. After the turn of the century, however, there was growing dissatisfaction with this ideal of blind and dispassionate justice. A crisis of trust in justice climaxed in the Weimar Republic, when various “scandals” undermined the façade of legal reason and validated a new politics of emotion. This essay looks at two justice affairs, both from the city of Magdeburg, which marked a turning-point in left-liberal attitudes toward justice."
