  • About

    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.
