I’ve been awarded a grant to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C. for a week in March. I’ll be researching my asylum case study, and more specifically, combing through the records of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital during the early 20th century.

I’ll be presenting a draft chapter from my dissertation at the Political Theory Workshop on Feb. 25. Please come if you can, I’d love to hear your feedback.

I’ll be in Boston next week, Oct. 15-20, collecting data for the first case study of my dissertation. Five days of combing through various archives and interviewing interesting people — should be wonderful!

I’ll be defending my dissertation proposal at 2pm this Friday, May 25. The working title of the dissertation is “On Self-Governance: Participation, Voice, and Resistance in Asylums, Prisons, and Schools.” Wish me luck!

Good news: the department is sending me to the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research (IQMR) this summer for additional methods training.

I’ll be presenting a draft of my dissertation prospectus (“Organizing Voice”) at the Political Theory Workshop on Dec. 5. If you’re available, please attend! I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s a link to a brief article I’ve written on the use of the language of investment in prison reform advocacy.
