Wow! In what fantastic cosmic bubble are we?

I study and teach Sociology, a discipline I see as a tool for understanding the human matrix: the complex webs of interactions, meanings, and structures that animate human society. Some of my research can be found from the links on this page. You may learn more about my work by following the “Publications and Projects” link.  Below is an example of the kind of networks that I study. In this image, lines between each node/corporation occur because they share membership in a government policy making committee on trade. You can link to more of these images by clicking on the image below. Links to a variety of sociological, social, political and informational websites are at “Related Links.”
