Welcome to Princeton, to our Freshman Seminar and to our blog! I am looking forward to meeting you and learning with you.
This blog will be a record of your research and creative process. It’s where you or your small working group can post links, audio, video, articles, scraps of conversations, raw interview text or footage, or reflections on what we’re up to in the course. Even seemingly small or offhand moments can be revelations in this work!
Thank you for opening these windows onto the performance of democracy and questions about how we participate and why.
Here’s an article I wrote for the Washington Post recently about my work related to what we’re doing in class, which might help orient you a bit.
