I am an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I teach a first-year criminal law course, an upper-level law and religion course, and various other classes on the First Amendment, law and philosophy, and religion and politics. 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, will be published by the University of Chicago Press in 2016.
