Aaron Hall graduated from Amherst College in 2006 with a BA in History and Political Science, and he received a JD from Harvard Law School in 2009. Currently a PhD student in the Department of History, he is working on a dissertation titled: A Constitutional Sublime: Claiming the Founding in Antebellum America. This project explores how fraught politics and popular constitutionalism informed a nationally-convergent rhetorical and conceptual approach to questions of constitutional meaning by the Civil War, even as interpretations diverged violently. His dissertation is about constitutional consciousness in early American history.
