Data Repository for Reproducible Research
To promote reproducibility, since 2009 all my empirical research has been cached in a data repository that captures all source code and data dependencies automatically or semi-automatically. Our principle goals are to modularize, document, and preserve all aspects of experimental data. So that others may benefit from or adapt my methods, I provide a bit of motivation and explanation here, along with the full description of the parameters and guidelines of the data repository (provided to my research students) and source code for the utilities.

Tutorial: Color, Culture and Class
Race thinking dominates ways in which people in the United States differentiate groups of people from each other. This tutorial focuses on associations between color and culture in order to examine how racial meanings are constructed and made comprehensible as well as how they are routed through representations of class. Using a combination of texts -- academic articles, films, newspapers and advertisements -- we will explore representations of "whiteness," "blackness," and other "race-d" identities in the public arena. Throughout the semester we will interrogate the language, ideas and assumptions that give meaning to the different ways we perceive the world around us and through which we understand our individual experiences.
