Christopher D. Berk

This fall I’ll be joining the faculty of the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University as an Assistant Professor. Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Program in Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law at the University of Virginia.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago in the fall of 2016. I’m also the graduate of a joint degree program, the M.L.S., at the University of Chicago Law School. My CV is available here.

My teaching and research center on the law, politics, and political theory of punishment. The working title of my book manuscript is Democracy in Captivity.
