Winnifred Fallers Sullivan

About: 

Winnifred Fallers Sullivan (State University of New York at Buffalo), Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Law and Religion Program at SUNY Buffalo, is currently the Lilly Endowment Fellow at the National Humanities Center. Trained as a lawyer and an historian of religion, Sullivan writes on the legal regulation of religion in the modern period. Her most recent book, The Impossibility of Religious Freedom(2005), makes the argument, through an ethnographic reading of a recent trial, that religious freedom is impossible, practically speaking, given the thorough dis–establishment of religious authority in the U.S. While at the National Humanities Center, Sullivan is working on her upcoming volume, provisionally entitled, The Bible, the Koran, and Dr. Seuss: Prisoner Rehabilitation in the 21st Century.
