Welcome, Sally Gordon!

We are delighted to announce that Sarah Barringer Gordon will join us as a guest blogger for the month of August. She hails from the University of Pennsylvania, where she is the Arlin M. Adams Professor of Constitutional Law and Professor of History. She received her Ph.D. from Princeton University, her J.D. from Yale Law School, and her M.A.R. (ethics) from Yale Divinity School.

Professor Gordon is the author of The Mormon Question: Polygamy and Constitutional Conflict in Nineteenth-Century America (University of North Carolina Press, 2002), and The Spirit of the Law: Religious Voices and the Constitution in Modern America (Harvard University Press, 2010). Her work has also appeared in the Cambridge History of American Law (Cambridge University Press, 2008), the Journal of American History, the Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities, and American Quarterly, among other outlets. We are looking forward to hearing about her current book project, which explores the connections between religion and property across American national history. 

Her service to the profession is equally impressive. She is co-editor (with Holly Brewer) of Studies in Legal History, the book series of the American Society for Legal History. She is also on the board of the William Nelson Cromwell Foundation, the editorial board of the Law & History Review, and the advisory board of the National Constitution Center. In 2012, she was appointed a Distinguished Lecturer for the Organization of American Historians. At Penn, she directs the J.D./Ph.D. program in American Legal History and helps run the Legal History Consortium.

Welcome, Sally Gordon!
