Social Movements, Political Sociology, Environmental Sociology
I am student of the world and the people who inhabit it. I'm constantly studying my surroundings and taking things in, trying to understand the connections and differences and problems that make it all up. Also, I am a PhD. candidate in Sociology. My dissertation is about the intersection of social movements and intentional communities, and what I call “lifestyle activism.” In the pursuit of this topic, I spent a year living at an Intentional Community (what many would label a “commune”) in rural northeast Missouri, and came back with many interesting stories to tell.
