I am an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I teach courses in criminal law, law and religion, and the First Amendment. My scholarship focuses on the First Amendment freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion, and related issues of political and legal theory. My first book, Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly, was published by Yale University Press in 2012. My second book, Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving Through Deep Difference, was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2016.
In Fall 2016, I will be co-teaching an undergraduate course, “Religious Freedom in America.”
