University of Michigan political scientist Mariah Zeisberg is the invited guest for Albion College's 2015 Aldrich Lecture in Law, Justice and Society. Her presentation takes places Wednesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Albion College Library Wendell Will Room.
Associate professor of political science at the University of Michigan, Zeisberg's primary research interests lie in constitutional theory, philosophy of law, liberal and democratic theory, and American political development. She is interested in the challenge that subjectivity, pluralism, and institutionally-rooted conflict pose to liberal ideas about political authority, which she addresses through research specifically on US constitutional practice. Zeisberg received her Ph.D. from Princeton University. She has been a Tatum Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law and, before arriving at Michigan, was a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University's Political Theory Project.
The Aldrich Speaker Forum honors the life and memory of David Aldrich, '75, a trial lawyer and chair of the Litigation Practice Group at Foster, Swift, Collins & Smith P.C., where he worked from 1978 until his untimely death in 2006.
This event, sponsored by Albion's Law, Justice and Society program, is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Albion College Law, Justice and Society program director Bill Rose, , 517/629-0414.
