a bit of self-promotion

I can’t help but be pleased to see the link to the McCarthy award lecture on Mobilizing Ideas titled “The Ethnic Dimensions in Social Movements”.  I only wish it already were a paper (as the synopsis implies) instead of just a big powerpoint, but the PR motivates me to try to get it written up. One incentive is that they promise you publication in Mobilization. I’m not even sure you have to go through peer review. Anyway, I do think the argument is important and I plan to get on the task of writing it up. Maybe in blog posts first?

Looking forward to seeing all of you in a few days in Denver. Do say hi if you see me.

I'm a sociology professor but not only a sociology professor. I keep my name out of this blog because I don't want my name associated with it in a Google search. Although I never write anything in a public forum like a blog that I'd be ashamed to have associated with my name (and you shouldn't either), it is illegal for me to use my position as a public employee to advance my religious or political views, and the pseudonym helps to preserve the distinction between my public and private identities. The pseudonym also helps to protect the people I may write about in describing public or semi-public events I've been involved with.
