Welcome to my home on the Internet.  Here you can find ungated text of my publications, slides for presentations I have given, teaching material you are welcome to use, and some of my recent thoughts that I have blogged.  

I am a Professor of Political Science at Kingsborough Community College in the City University of New York; I am also on the faculty of the Digital Humanities Program at the CUNY Graduate Center.  In Fall, 2021, I was a  Fulbright Scholar at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.  I have a PhD in Political Science from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. My research areas include human rights, media coverage of human rights and refugee issues, and Open Educational Resources in higher education. I am the author of Television News and Human Rights in the US & UK: The Violations Will Not Be Televised (Routledge 2015) and my current book project is co-authored with Dr. Janet Reilly. I spend my spare time making art with my family.
