We welcome Susan Burgess, a political scientist and legal scholar who teaches at Ohio University, as the newest contributor to our blog. Susan and I met years ago at a wonderful short course on law and popular culture hosted by the American Political Science Association. She gave a talk called "Who's Your Daddy? Legitimacy, Parody and Soap Operas in Contemporary Constitutional Discourse," which is forthcoming in the Law, Culture and Humanities journal. Her humor and insight into all things law and culture precede her. We are very glad to have her aboard.
