Kevin in Paris c. 2004I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology at Eastern Michigan University. My work focuses on policing as a useful nexus for exploring questions in both political anthropology and the anthropology of morality. My dissertation, The Police Against Itself: assembling a “post-social” police (UC Berkeley 2009), provides an ethnographic account of the ethical work undertaken by police officers, administrators, educators and citizens as they experiment with new forms of sociality “after the social moment” in France.  Before teaching at EMU, I taught at UC Berkeley, UC DavisFondation Nationale des Sciences Politiques (Sciences Po, Paris) and Assumption College (Worcester, MA).   I founded and maintain a group blog on the anthropology of policing, called Anthropoliteia.

Here is more about my research.  Here is my CV.  Or you can learn more abut me at academia.edu.
