A Conversation with Ganesh Sitaraman
Please join the American Constitution Society for our first speaker of the year, Ganesh Sitaraman!
Ganesh Sitaraman is Chancellor’s Faculty Fellow, Professor of Law, Director of the Program on Law and Government at Vanderbilt Law School, and an ACS Board Member. One of the nation’s leading progressive legal scholars, Professor Sitaraman writes widely on constitutional law and political theory, economic and foreign policy, and other issues. From 2011 to 2013, Professor Sitaraman was Policy Director on Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign, and subsequently worked as her Senior Counsel in the United States Senate.
Professor Sitaraman’s most recent book, The Public Option, with Anne Alstott, advocates for the greater use of government-provided services coexisting with the private sector to meet important public needs while spurring competition. And his recent article, “How to Save the Supreme Court,” with Daniel Epps, proposes several innovative ways to reform the Supreme Court and has already had an impact on the Democratic presidential primary.
In conversation with Professor Alstott, Professor Sitaraman will discuss The Public Option, court reform, and other issues like policymaking and the law, the revival of progressive ideas, working on political campaigns, and more.
