Gabriel Levine is a fourth-year doctoral candidate in the Department of Politics. His dissertation examines the intellectual history of environmental law in the twentieth-century United States. Gabe argues that environmental law uneasily synthesized two distinct strands of thought: one emphasizing efficient regulation of pollution; the other, court-centered citizen activism. Drawing from this history, and from neglected perspectives in environmental thought, he proposes an alternative, “infrastructural” account of environmental law. This account, Gabe argues, can usefully supplement yesterday’s synthesis in responding to today’s climate crisis. He received his B.A. from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.
