Department of Politics - Oberlin College

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in
various ways. The point, however, is to change it."
Karl Marx

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main... Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."
John Donne

ABOUT THIS SITE:

This site is under construction. Some bits work, while others do not, and I plan on expanding the sections on labor issues and other links and non-academic interests. The drop down menu located at the bottom of each page is the main navigation tool for the site. Broadly speaking, the pages linked to Oberlin Courses describe the courses I teach, have syllabi and some appropriate links, and give me a place to provide new information about assignments. The Research & Scholarship pages list my publications, some career details, work-in-progress, and have the full-text of some (mostly unpublished) papers. Since I have a particular interest in Labor Issues, those pages will highlight job openings in the labor movement, labor-related events on campus and in the surrounding area (for example, John Sweeney's commencement address in 1999), and relevant links. The Other Links & Interests pages will include family links and pages on some of my passions, including Hong Kong film, Chelsea Football Club, the Oakland Raiders (don't ask!), and squash.
