9/23: On my way home from an amazing convening at Hand-in-Glove. Thanks to everyone, most especially Shanai Matteson and Colin Kloecker from Works Progress, Lacey Prpić Hedtke from the Soap Factory, and my copanelists Lisa Dent, Wing Young Huie, and Lise Soskolne / WAGE. If you missed it, you can watch the panels here, and Common Field is now a real thing that you should check out. Hope to see you all soon.

9/15: I’m getting ready and getting excited for Hand-in-Glove later this week. There’s a reading list if you feel like getting bookish for the next few days (see if you can spot my recommendations! fun party game!). And there’s a little something that I wrote about art, which you can find here below the editorial statement. See you at the Soap Factory soon.

8/30: Joe and I wrote a paper. It was just nominated for the SAGE Prize for Innovation and Excellence. Better read it while it’s hot.

8/26: Morgan Mercer asked Works Progress, Sean Sherman, and me 77 questions about Hand-in-Glove, a convening on the contexts and conditions of artist-led culture across the country that will meet this September in Minneapolis. You can read her interview, complete with lovely portraits, here. Hope to see you at the Soap Factory.

8/26: A paper by Clayton Childress and myself on the uses of a useless credential (the MFA in creative writing) is now available at Professions and Professionalism for you to enjoy.


7/27: I wrote a review of Menger’s Economics of Creativity and it’s out now in Organization Studies here. Hit me up if you can’t see it.

*Midway through I talk about a movie. Not sure how the typo / film renaming thing happened; never saw page proofs. I’ve asked them to fix it in the online version.


7/2: in Athens for EGOS (above, philosopher Alexander Nehamas on velvet elvises). Hope to see you here or at ASA / JTS in Chicago later this summer.


6/11: Happy to say that’s my signature on an advance contract from Stanford for a book based on my dissertation research!

4/28: Later this week I’ll be at the Yale Center for Cultural Sociology’s annual conference, where I’ll comment on papers by Andy Cohen and Håkon Larsen. See you there.

2/22: Heading to Easterns this week. I’ll be presenting on a great panel with talks by Steven Dubin, Cara Zimmerman, Anne Bowler, and myself and comments from Vera Zolberg on Saturday at 3:30. Hope to see you there.
