Emily Zackin’s current project examines America’s long history of debtors’ rights movements and the constitutional controversies surrounding their demands. In particular, it asks how insolvent debtors were able to fashion a social safety net from bankruptcy’s narrow, creditor-friendly origins, despite the potentially prohibitive private property rights in the U.S. Constitution.
