I am a professor of history at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center. This blog will have some original content, as well as pulling together my other writing on due process and pedagogical diversity in the contemporary academy. For my academic background: my B.A. (1988) and Ph.D. (1993) come from Harvard, my M.A. from the University of Chicago (1989). Before coming to Brooklyn, I taught at Arizona State and Williams; I also have served as a visiting professor at Harvard University and at Tel Aviv University, as Fulbright Distinguished Chair in the Humanities. I currently blog as part of a joint blog of academics and higher-ed commentators (Minding the Campus). I previously blogged on the Duke lacrosse case at Durham-in-Wonderland (2006-14); and as part of a joint blog of historians (Cliopatria @ History News Network, 2004-11).
