Academics don’t usually like to “self promote,” especially when it comes to big career moves. But this is news about me that I’m thrilled to share:

I will be joining the Case Western Reserve University School of Law faculty as a tenured full professor effective January 1, 2023. Though this is a major transition, I will nonetheless continue my teaching and scholarship around Election Law, Civil Rights, and Race and the Law.

In particular, I will be engaged two exciting projects in the near future at Case which will expand my research, engagement, and public commentary around voter eligibility, democracy, and race. First, I’m excited to share that I am co-authoring a forthcoming new edition of Derrick Bell’s Race Racism and American Law (with Cheryl Harris, Justin Hansford, Amna Akbar, and Audrey McFarland). The completed book will be forthcoming in the next year or so. Second, I look forward to furthering preliminary work I have done towards a book project around voter suppression and American democracy. Both of these projects will inform the contributions I look forward to making at Case.

While I’m saddened to leave my friends at Marquette and am grateful for the five years of community I have had in Wisconsin, my spouse and I are excited to have the opportunity to be on the ground in Ohio. While she forwards her work on military ethics, I look forward to continuing to teach, lecture, and research around the present and future of American democracy.
