Alexander Rosas's picture
Dean of Pauli Murray College


Alexander S. Rosas is the inaugural Dean of Pauli Murray College and a Lecturer in Political Science. Dean Rosas’ academic interests in political theory and law lie in issues of international human rights law and cultural diversity, theories of justice, and law and society. He is particularly interested in how modern nation-states can and should (or cannot and should not) use law to negotiate between markedly different cultural and religious groups and, more generally, in the complex relationship between law and freedom. He teaches political theory courses on law and freedom and on punishment.
