SLS Faculty Hiring Update:
SLS welcomes Professor Elizabeth A. Reese, Yunpoví, which means Willow Flower in the Tewa language. Professor Reese will join its faculty on June 1 as an assistant professor of law. With a focus on American Indian tribal law and constitutional law, Reese’s scholarship examines the way government structures, citizen identity, and the history that is taught in schools can impact the rights and powers of oppressed racial minorities within American law. Reese is tribally enrolled at Nambé Pueblo, one of the six Tewa-speaking pueblos of the northern Rio Grande region, where she is an active member of the community. Reese’s appointment is part of a Stanford University faculty cluster hire to add eminent scholars and researchers who are leaders in the study of the impact of race in America, an initiative under Stanford’s IDEAL initiative. Established in 2018, IDEAL is a larger cross-campus effort to create a more inclusive, accessible, diverse, and equitable university for all Stanford community members.
Reese is the first Native American to become a member of the Stanford Law school faculty.
