[New publication] Revisiting the master’s toolset: concerning pedagogy, privilege, and the classroom-to-war room pipeline

Here’s an essay I just had published in the amazing publication, Interface: a journal for and about social movements. I wrote this a year or so ago after receiving yet another email from a student updating me on their post-undergraduate career moves. In my short time teaching, I have written letters of recommendation and served as a reference for quite a few students–some of which went on to work for entities I find less than ethical.

The essay is a bit of playful satire speaking of my place in the university as a contingently-employed, critical terrorism scholar.
