The Year in Review: Originalism Articles of 2021 (Part 1)
Michael Ramsey

Continuing my 2021 originalism retrospective (see here for the first post on books), I turn to originalism-oriented articles featured on the blog in the past year.  I plan to highlight some of the most important articles (in my view), but to avoid conflicts of interest, I'll first note originalism-oriented articles from my Originalism Blog and USD Originalism Center colleagues, either published or posted on SSRN in 2021.  Here are 10:
