Ph.D., University of Kentucky
Sociology of Knowledge, Cultural Sociology, Social Theory
One of my students once suggested to me that my courses were "agents of social change." I'm not sure that's true, but it is something to which I aspire.
Although sociology may seem to be merely another subject with its own vocabulary, theoretical frameworks, and methodological manipulations, I believe it has the capacity to transform how we see our own lives, the lives of others, and our life together.
Our world is in desperate need of well-informed, reflective, and caring citizens. I hope my courses, whether in social thought or sociology of knowledge, in religion or introductory sociology, will help nurture those capacities in our students.
