I'm a cultural anthropologist interested in information society and globalization, primarily in the United States and Korea. My M.A. and Ph.D. are from American University in Washington, D.C. Before I became Chair and Professor at Towson University, I taught at Dongseo University in Pusan, South Korea. During 2006-2007, I spent a Fulbright year at Kookmin University in Seoul. My online c.v. and course materials are available here. You can also see my profile on the academic social networking site,

I've published (or edited) three books, all of which are still in print (to the best of my knowledge):

1. All Tomorrow's Cultures: Anthropological Engagements with the Future with Berghahn Books.I have a blog on anthropology and the future in order to continue the issues raised in this book.

2). Goran Trajkovski and I have also published an edited collection of articles entitled Handbook of Research on Agent-Based Societies: Social and Cultural Interactions with IGI Global.

3). Finally, I've published Library of Walls: the Library of Congress and the Contradictions of Information Society with Litwin Books.
