Ahead of APSA next week, I’ll be attending an all-day workshop on the Youth and Participatory Politics Survey Project. Aug. 30, San Francisco.

I’ll be presenting a new chapter of my book manuscript on a panel at the Western Political Science Association annual conference in the spring. April 13-15 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Starting in July, I’m a visiting scholar at The Newberry in Chicago. I couldn’t ask for a more fitting place to finish the final leg of my dissertation ahead of the move to Charlottesville.

Starting at the end of August, I’ll be a postdoctoral fellow in the Program in Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law (PPL) at the University of Virginia. The position is for two years, potentially renewable for a third. I’m eager to be a part of the vibrant intellectual community at UVa, to write and to teach, and to extend the research agenda developed in my dissertation. [Linked here.]

I’ll be defending my dissertation next month. New York City, August 15.



Great news! My article on the Walpole prison rebellion — “On Prison Democracy: The Politics of Participation in a Maximum Security Prison” — has been accepted for publication at Critical Inquiry.

I’m visiting Carnegie Mellon University in a week to learn more about networks and network analysis. I’ll be learning new methods while working with the sociometric data from my boarding school case study — a perfect way to start the summer!

I was just informed that I’ve won a dissertation fellowship in the Social Science Division’s William Rainey Harper Fellowship competition.

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting in-progress research (headed by Prof. Cathy Cohen) on race & youth political engagement to the MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics in Los Angeles.

I’m in DC this week doing follow-up research on St. E’s at NARA.
