Summer Lovin’ [why ‘time off’ is never ‘time off’]

So it’s officially the summer, and while some may assume that this grants us in the academic trenches some relief, I’d beg to differ. For me, the summer means not having to commute to Miami University, but I am still designing and teaching for Georgetown University’s Intersections program, and catching up on the many, many projects … Continue reading

[New publication] Activism, Terrorism, and Social Movements: The “Green Scare” as Monarchical Power

I am happy to report that another one of my articles has made its way to the great wide world.

“Why we are with the fighters (what do we mean by solidarity?)”

I’m reposting it here because it’s unlikely many will have seen it. It appeared in the publication, Return Fire #3, a UK-based green anarchist publication. This … Continue reading

Updates from a manic writer

For me, it means that my work load goes from heavy to light as students depart campuses and the year winds down. For those outside of the September-May work cycle, this may not be immediately apparent, but those … Continue reading

[Prison journal]: Third and Fourth entries

Entry #3 I just finished writing in about 20 prisoner notebooks. It’s been such a long while since I have hand written anything of that quantity. I feel that if the students take the time to write to me, than it is my obligation to do the same to them. I try and mirror their … Continue reading

[New publication]: Sexuality, Assault, Police Infiltration and Foucault: Notes for Further Inquiry

[New presentation] Towards the queerest (reading of) insurrection

Thought I’ve been a bit inactive on this blog, I’ve been busy writing. Between teaching 5 simultaneous classes (Georgetown, George Mason, Jessup Correctional Institution), completing 3 simultaneous fellowships (Georgetown, George Mason, Hebrew Union College) and a bit of service work (some club/bar), I’ve managed to churn out several hundred pages of my PhD dissertation which … Continue reading
