Meet Our Sociology Editor

Work that tests assumptions and explores the intersections of race, class, and gender in interesting ways is always welcome, as is work that takes a (well-grounded) stand. I encourage books that meld empirical research with theoretical insight, and strive to share that evidence and thought in clear, compelling prose. In academic publishing, we often speak of scholarship for the public square. It’s a worthy goal, even when we can’t predict how many readers will show up at that square. I try to help authors prepare themselves and their writing for smart, engaged readers.

Beyond the book, I have a long-standing commitment to digital scholarship and remain deeply engaged in seeking the best ways to truly publish (not post) that scholarship. Most recently that includes digital “supplements” for books in the New Perspectives on the Civil War Era series, as well as serving on the University of Georgia’s Digital Humanities Steering Committee, part of a broader DIGI collaboration with UGA Libraries, faculty, and the Willson Center.

So, I seek fresh ideas in books and digital scholarship that bring lucid but constructive complexity to our established stories. Books that make me go “hmmm?” That’s what I seek. Surprise me.
