I am not teaching during the calendar year 2012, in order to devote my time to two projects. Both of them originated with a 2009 National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute that I participated in on “The Rule of Law: Legal Studies and the Liberal Arts.”

Course Development Project

With the support of an NEH Enduring Questions Pilot Course Grant, I am creating an interdisciplinary Humanities Foundational Studies course on “What is Justice?” I will teach the course in the Spring and Fall semesters of 2013. Click here for a description of the course.

Book Project

Supported by an Idaho Humanities Council Research Grant, Boise State’s College of Arts and Sciences, and a fellowship from the Boise State University Arts and Humanities Institute, I am writing a new book on Tennessee Williams and the law, tentatively titled “Illegal Bodies: Law and Emotion in the Work of Tennessee Williams.” Click here for more details.
