Playing catch up: syllabi, articles & even (my first) book!

I am so very behind in keeping this blog current and for that I have my regrets. When I set it up I imagined it as a play-by-play of my work, updated as often as I published, but as I have learned, the clock never stops to allow us to take stock of what we’ve … Continue reading

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] “Operação Splash Back!: A Queerização da Libertação Animal e as Contribuições dos Neo-insurrecionários queers”

I’m happy to share that a journal article I wrote back in 2012 has been translated and republished in Portuguese by Revista Latinoamericana de Estudios Críticos Animales. The paper originally appeared as “Operation Splash Back!: Queering Animal Liberation Through the Contributions of Neo-Insurrectionist Queers” in the Journal of Critical Animal Studies, Inquiries and Interventions: Queer Theory and … Continue reading

[New Syllabi]: “Social/Political Activism” & “Terrorism” @ Miami University

With a very successful first semester behind me at Miami University, we’re now entering week two of my second term at the ‘Harvard of the Midwest’ as it’s locally known. I have really enjoyed my time teaching at MU so far. The students are eager and engaged, my colleagues welcoming and warm, and the facilities are … Continue reading

[New video] Two talks at the Peace & Justice Studies Association conference

It has been a little over two months since I returned from the picturesque hideaway of Neslon, BC, the site of the 2016 Peace and Justice Studies Association conference. While it was my first conference as the Executive Director of PJSA, we got off to a running start. Besides the usual tasks that fall upon … 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. Though this was originally written a few years back, re-editing it for publication allowed me to make a whole host of new connections between the Green Scare, and the more current wave of right-wing violence … Continue reading

[New publication] Interpreting Insurrectionary Corpora: Qualitative-Quantitative Analysis of Clandestine Communiqués

It is with great pleasure that I can announce the release of a new journal article. This article appears in the Journal for the Study of Radicalism, and I am happy to say constitutes the first ‘in print’ piece from my doctoral research project.   Interpreting Insurrectionary Corpora: Qualitative-Quantitative Analysis of Clandestine Communiqués   Anyone … Continue reading

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

[ED NOTE: I do not typically use this space to repost pieces from the vastness of the internet, but this particular piece embodies a spirit I quite identify with. 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 a great many of us who work on an academic calendar, this week tastes especially sweet. 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
