I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Otterbein University, Co-Editor of the journal Rethinking Marxism, and Secretary of the International Gramsci Society.
I specialize in political theory and American politics, with scholarly interests in the history of political thought, the politics of inequality, theories of social justice, Marxian political thought, critical and cultural theory, environmental political theory, and political economy. My research examines the ways in which inequality and subalternity are addressed in political thought and incorporated into social and political practices.
