Professor Breen is a Lecturer of Legal Studies at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts. He holds a J.D. in Law from the University of Georgia, and a Ph.D. in American History from Boston College.

Dr. Breen’s lectures on a variety of presidential historical topics on the historical and legal underpinnings of or democracy and on presidencies through the modern era. Discussion will focus on the beginnings of gerrymandering, its negative effect upon the free election process and how it has been used throughout history to accomplish invidious discrimination against minorities and women. Discussion will include how our nation can reverse the audacious use of gerrymandering that has so openly fragmented our state and national elections, and if left unabated, will serve to undermine the free and open democratic ‘one person one vote’ election process.
