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.
Anthropology Honor Society
URI Anthropology students have been chartered as the Alpha Rhode Island Chapter of Lamda Alpha, the national anthropology honor society. This is a tribute to the hard work of several students and to the academic excellence of our majors and our faculty. Right now, the recruitment of charter members is underway. If you're interested in being one of the first Lamda Alphas, shoot off an email to Ashley Waggoner for all the details.
The URI Anthropology Society is also up and running. Check out their page too.
