As a freelance writer, I’ve contributed to publications ranging from Artforum.com to Life & Style to Paper Darts to Photo District News. I’m a primary author or editor of four books: Future Cities (co-editor with Becky Lang and author of a story, Bascom Hill, 2013); Sociology for Dummies (sole author, Wiley, 2010), Insiders’ Guide to the Twin Cities, Seventh Edition (sole author of updated edition, Globe Pequot, 2010), Reconstructing the University (co-author with David John Frank, Stanford University Press, 2006).
In 2013, I’m pleased to be serving as a visiting critic in the Jerome Foundation Fellowship program at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). I’ll be meeting throughout the year with fellowship recipients Susannah Bielak, Amanda Hankerson, Michael Hoyt, Melissa Loop, and Lauren Roche; the fellowship year will culminate in an exhibition for which I’ll write the catalog essays.
