Richard Price


I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Weber State University and I teach a range of courses on law and courts. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about rights and governmental power, among other things. My current project is tentatively called Contesting the Right to Read. I study the discourses book challengers use to justify restriction or removal of books from schools and libraries.

Outside of academia I’m an amateur beer snob, a cat wrangler who’s hoping to go pro, and a baseball fan (go Red Sox!). I also bake an unhealthy number of reasonably edible sweet items.
