General Editor for Education, Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology
I work with writers to produce fresh, provocative books that cross disciplinary boundaries and speak to a diverse readership. In the humanities, my interests are wide-ranging: environmental studies, American studies, music, and global and cultural history. In psychology, anthropology, cognitive studies, and related disciplines in the social and human sciences, I seek projects that explore behavior and development across the lifespan and under a variety of circumstances—in families and communities, in business and work, among voters and political figures, for example—and deal with such issues as violence, aging, health, poverty, and gender. In education, I welcome manuscripts that address the many practical problems that faculties, students, and administrators face as the role of education changes, and as the methods and materials of both instruction and research evolve.
