Academic Publications

Despite the push to open access publishing, many (if not most) academic articles are still behind subscription-only walls. Some of my articles and book chapters can be found on, if you have a login for that (it’s free, but a commercial enterprise and signing up comes with the usual annoying emails). If you don’t have access to one of my articles and would like to read it, please email me and I’ll send you a pdf.
