Jonathan Gienapp is Associate Professor of History at Stanford University. He specializes in the constitutional, political, and intellectual history of the American Revolutionary era. His first book, The Second Creation: Fixing the American Constitution in the Founding Era (2018), explores how understandings of the U.S. Constitution transformed during the decade following its ratification. It won the Thomas J. Wilson Memorial Prize from Harvard University Press and the Best Book in American Political Thought Award from the American Political Science Association and was a finalist for the Frederick Jackson Turner Award from the Organization of American Historians and was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title and a Spectator USA Book of the Year. He has published work in numerous venues, including the William and Mary Quarterly, the Journal of the Early Republic, Law and History Review, Constitutional Commentary, and The Boston Globe. He has appeared on NPR and his work has been featured numerous times in The New York Times. He is currently writing two books. The first presents a historical critique of the theory of constitutional originalism—the influential theory of constitutional interpretation currently championed by a majority of the United States Supreme Court. The second explores the intertwined history of popular sovereignty and nationhood in the early United States as told through the forgotten history of the Constitution’s Preamble.
