Research interests have included economic sociology, political economy, organization theory, and the sociology of higher education. Recent research projects include “The Ports Project” a community-based research project aimed at studying the various aspects and implications of a port economy, generally, and the expansion of the Jaxport enterprise, specifically. And, more recently, I have returned to my earlier interest in theories and dynamics of capitalist economic crises, but in the context of the ongoing neoliberal political-economic policy regime instituted since the late 1970’s.
