Welcome to my new blog!
Most of the information on professormax.org reports on my scholarly activities, including research and teaching as well as service to the university and the community.
The living portion of the site — the blog — aims to educate readers on various current and historical issues related to various social movements and political struggles over justice, power, and opportunity — broadly defined. It assumes that you want the truth and endeavors to provide it. Its goal is to help readers gain a better understanding of the big policy issues that have shaped recent American history and continue to inform present-day debates about the proper role of the state, the distribution of power and resources, and ongoing campaigns for social change.
I hope that the blog encourages critical thinking among students and other interested readers. Please feel free to disagree with me in the comments.
Of course, the occasional editorial or opinionated remark does not reflect the official views of TCU, the Department of History of Geography, or anyone else besides yours truly.
Please let me know what you think!
