Hello! I am an assistant professor of law and history at Vanderbilt Law School, in Nashville, Tennessee. Previously I was a Sharswood Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I have a PhD from the History Department at Stanford University (focusing on United States history) and a JD from Stanford Law School.
From 2009-12, I ran the Prison Law Blog. Nowadays, you can (occasionally) find me on Twitter @saramayeux or email me at sara dot mayeux at vanderbilt dot edu.
