“The Limits of Recognition”

Today, when collecting my work mail for the first time in months, I found a copy of the most recent issue of American Studies, where I published an article called “The Limits of Recognition: Rethinking Conventional Critiques of Drone Warfare.” Thanks to the editors and the two anonymous readers for their thoughtful engagement with my ideas and all the nudges in the direction of making them better.

Two fantastic student researchers …

I don’t usually use this forum to talk about my students’ work, but it’s been such an eventful week that I couldn’t resist.

umbc reviewAli Knowles published a *peer-reviewed* paper, “How Donald Trump Tweeted his way into the White House,” in the UMBC Review, a journal of undergraduate research.

And Kenneth-Julius M’Bale presented – virtually, of course – on “Cuckolding Culture in Rap” at this year’s Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD).

I’m really proud of them both.
