After a hiatus from blogging, I wanted to write today that I have returned to the blog — and that I get to start an exciting new phase in my work.
Specifically, I have arrived at Marquette University Law School — my new institutional home. Though I announced my move in March, and I moved into my office in Eckstein Hall in Milwaukee last month, I’m excited to teach my first class here as a full-time faculty member today (during which, I’ll take my students to Dickensian England — via Youtube, of course — in the first meeting of my Trusts & Estates course).
I am excited to be at Marquette Law not only to talk about the ephemera of probate, but also the all too real and big picture issues around voter suppression, racial segregation, and other issues that matter greatly to the United States and to the Milwaukee and Marquette community in particular. I look forward to conversations around these issues (like the ones I had last year) with members of my new communities.
In that spirit, I am also returning to blogging more regularly, to speaking, traveling, and writing, and to sharing past and future major projects. So, expect more posts in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. For example, I will share (finally!) my TEDx talk on the Meme of Voter Fraud. I will also share information about a talk I will give next month on “Integrity, Equality, and the Fragility of the Right to Vote.” And this is just the beginning for this fall semester.
