By April Bogle

Frank S. Alexander, founding director and co-director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion (CSLR), has published a new study, Life Together: How Housing Laws Define America’s Families (Emory University, 2006). The study is the expanded text of Alexander’s Distinguished Faculty Lecture delivered at Emory in 2005. It represents work in progress on a monograph that shows how the regulations of the federal, state, and local welfare variously define and sometimes malign our notion of family and family values. 



The Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University is home to world-class scholars and forums on the religious foundations of law, politics, and society. It offers first-rank expertise on how the teachings and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have shaped and can continue to transform the fundamental ideas and institutions of our public and private lives. The scholarship of CSLR faculty provides the latest perspectives, while its conferences and public forums foster reasoned and robust public debate.
