Introduction to the site

If a blog reflects the interests of its writer, then this one will be difficult to categorize.  There will be some ruminations on history and archaeology; thoughts about friends and relationships; pictures of various journeys; and thoughts about pedagogy.  After studying all the liberal arts at a “Great Books” school and working on a joint degree in history and anthropological archaeology, I realized that at the center of my investigations, driving my curiosity, is an interest in people: in our history, in the ways we tell each other about what we think is important, in the ways in which we build our lives and our societies, and also in how we learn.  This blog is an attempt to synthesize my longstanding interest in people and the world we make (and how we write and learn about it), an inquiry into (and observations about) the social, and the science.
