Originally from Phoenix, Arizona--and very glad to be back home -- Sean Beienburg attended Pomona College in Claremont, California, graduating in 2008 with majors in politics and history, and completed his doctorate at Princeton University in New Jersey in 2015. Before coming to ASU, he taught at Haverford College and Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.
Beienburg's teaching and research interests include the Constitution and constitutional law, American political development and American political thought, federalism and state constitutionalism/politics, executive power (both presidential and gubernatorial), parties and interest groups, 19th and early 20th century political and constitutional history, and Prohibition.
He is the author of Prohibition, the Constitution, and States' Rights (published by the University of Chicago Press, 2019) and is finishing another book on states as constitutional interpreters and progressive federalists in the progressive and New Deal eras.
He is the project director of the Living Repository of the Arizona Constitution initiative.
In addition to his scholarly work, he also written about the political themes of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.
