I teach courses in the areas of constitutional law, civil rights and civil liberties, jurisprudence, administrative law, American political thought, and U.S. legal institutions. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and my Masters degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I taught for six years at Boise State University. My publications include Representing Popular Sovereignty: The Constitution in American Political Culture (SUNY Press, 1999) and articles in Law and Social Inquiry, Polity, Public Performance and Management Review, Legal Studies Forum, Crime and Delinquency, other journals, and numerous reference works. My current research projects include Civil Liberties/UnAmerican Activities, a monograph concerning the civil liberties of American Communists and perceived sympathizers during the Cold War, articles on civil liberties within the modern administrative state, and articles on administrative decision-making and democratic theory. As part of my service to the community, I am a member of the Utah Advisory Board to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and mediate employment discrimination claims for the Utah Labor Commission.
