Linda Greenhouse won the Pulitzer Prize for her coverage of the
U.S. Supreme Court while working for the New York Times. She is now a
senior research scholar at the Yale Law School.
The 2022 James R. Soles Lecture on the Constitution and Citizenship
will be presented by Linda Greenhouse, a senior research scholar at Yale
Law School and previously an award-winning correspondent for The New York Times.
In her lecture, “Who Owns the Constitution?” Greenhouse will speak
about recent Supreme Court decisions and the court’s new term that
begins Oct. 3. The event will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 19,
at Gore Recital Hall in the Roselle Center for the Arts at the
University of Delaware.
The Supreme Court term that concluded in June featured some of the
most significant court decisions in recent memory. From June 23 to June
30, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and struck down the
nationwide right to abortion, and separately, declared that law-abiding
Americans have a right to carry handguns outside the home for
self-defense. Cases on immigration, school prayer and the Environmental
Protection Agency’s powers also were decided during this eight-day
period. (The court typically saves its biggest cases for the end of
The upcoming term also could prove to be momentous, with the court
agreeing to hear such high-stakes cases as a pair of cases challenging
race as a factor in college admissions and a case that could potentially
give state legislatures more power over federal elections.
Greenhouse is widely recognized as an expert on the nation’s highest
court. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism in 1998 “for her
consistently illuminating coverage of the United States Supreme Court.”
Before starting her second career at Yale in 2009, Greenhouse was on
the staff of The New York Times for nearly 30 years. She continues to write regularly for The Times and other publications.
In her extracurricular life, Greenhouse has served since 2017 as
president of the American Philosophical Society, the nation’s oldest
learned society. She is its first female president since the society’s
founding by Benjamin Franklin in 1743. She is a graduate of Radcliffe
College (Harvard) and earned a master of studies in law degree from Yale
Law School. She has published six books, most recently, Justice on
the Brink: The Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Rise of Amy Coney
Barrett, and Twelve Months that Transformed the Supreme Court.

This annual lecture honors the late James R. Soles, who was a faculty member in the Department of Political Science and International Relations for
more than 34 years. The lecture is held around the time of Constitution
Day, as it also serves to commemorate the signing of the U.S.
Constitution in Philadelphia on Sept. 17, 1787.
Soles, who died in 2010, received the university’s Excellence in
Teaching Award twice and its Excellence in Advising Award, as well as
the University’s Medal of Distinction. He received many honors and
recognitions in his distinguished career, but he is still best
remembered for his personal dedication to teaching and to his students.
The James R. Soles Citizenship Endowment supports a named
professorship, undergraduate citizenship stipends and graduate
fellowships. The first stipends were awarded more than 10 years ago, and
recipients have used this support in a wide range of accomplishments. Learn more about recent recipients.
