Philosophizing on Bobbleheads

 

Mark Weiner has posted a video on his Worlds of Law blog, which features our Supreme Court Bobblhead Collection. In “A Philosophical Reflection on Judicial Bobbleheads”, Weiner uses the bobbleheads as a point of departure for a comparison between the judiciary in the U.S. and Germany. You can also view the video on YouTube.

The cataloging of our Bobblehead Doll Collection was completed just this week, and Mark Weiner’s video is a direct result. You can browse the entire collection via the record for the Bobblehead Doll Collection in our online catalog, MORRIS.  In addition, the records for the Supreme Court Bobbleheads feature thumbnail images (like the one shown here) derived from the “Annotated Bobbleheads” on the website of The Green Bag, the “journal of entertaining law” that issues the bobbleheads.

Thanks to Mark Weiner for the video, to our cataloger Susan Karpuk for her fine cataloging, to Mary Jane Kelsey (Associate Librarian for Technical Services) for linking the thumbnail images, and to Ross Davies, editor of The Green Bag, for designating the Lillian Goldman Law Library as the official Supreme Court Bobblehead archive.
