LAPA Visiting Scholar, 2005-2006
While at LAPA
Life after LAPA
Nancy Maveety is Professor of Political Science at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA and writes on judicial decision making and the U.S. Supreme Court. Current work includes a collaborative book project on the history and development of concurring behavior and opinion-writing on the Supreme Court, and the cataloguing (and mining) of the scholarly papers of Beverly Blair Cook for the Newcomb College Institute Archives. During 2007-2008, Prof. Maveety was a Fulbright lecturer and visiting scholar to the People's Republic of China. She continues her interest in comparative court studies with a new book project outlining comparative approaches to judicial process, which will be her first foray into textbook-writing.
Prof. Maveety was a LAPA “Katrina fellow” in Fall 2005, returning to her life in New Orleans and the reopening of Tulane University in January 2006. As a native New Jersey-ite who had never before visited Princeton (the campus or the town), she cherishes many fond memories of her time spent with her wonderfully supportive colleagues at LAPA--and of those sublime concerts held in the Princeton University chapel. Such acoustics!
