The Year in Review: Originalism Articles of 2021 (Part 3)
Michael Ramsey

My final post in this series is entirely subjective: I picked 22 originalism-oriented articles from 2021 (that weren't on my other 2 lists, see here and here), that were featured on the Originalism Blog, and that I thought were especially interesting.  (Here is my similar post from last year.)
