Job: I'm currently assistant professor of sociology at Indiana University, Bloomington. I'm finishing up a book manuscript that began as my dissertation at Princeton. It will hopefully be published in 2007. I'm continuing my research at the intersection of cultural analysis and social policy, as well as working on projects on (a) conflicts over morality in the U.S., (b) the possible connections between people's religious views and practices and their views of the economy and free markets, and (c) religious liberalism in the U.S. over the past century. Ph.D. Dissertation: The Failed Welfare Revolution: Policy, Culture, and the Struggle for Guaranteed Income in the U.S., 1965-1980
