As second semester mid-terms approach, it's with a lot of fondness that I have to begin saying "goodbye" to Smith and "hello" to a new appointment in academic year 2012-13. I'm thrilled to join the faculty in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Muhlenberg College as a Consortium for Faculty Diversity postdoc. The CFD program is very supportive of its fellows and Muhlenberg, specifically, has been very supportive of my intellectual interests and goals.
CFD has recruited many of my dearest friends and colleagues from UCSB Sociology to a variety of small liberal arts campuses all over the country. I'm excited to follow in their footsteps. And on a very personal note, my little sister lives and works as a grade school teacher in Allentown, PA, where Muhlenberg is located, so this is an especially happy fit for me. I'm already counting the days until she and I can reunite at our favorite place in the Lehigh Valley.
