Here’s a photo of me receiving the 2000 Maine Distinguished Professor Award. As you can see, the University of Maine is a very progressive place. If you flash the peace sign, they give you a big award. Seriously, I hope that this site will provide a little biographical information about me, access to long and short versions of my curriculum vitae (publications, courses, lectures, honors, activities), some information on my research and publications (with links to several of my publications), information on my teaching, and information on my peace and justice scholarship and activism.

I can be reached at:
