I’m so excited the book I’ve been working on with Lambros Fatsis over the last few years is coming out in June. It’s the result of a long conversation we’ve had about our mutual frustrations concerning ‘public sociology’ which led us to rethink what it means to be public scholars once digital platforms are ubiquitous and the public sphere has been decimated by COVID-19.
Chapter 1. Defining ‘the Public’
Chapter 2. The History of Platforms
Chapter 3. Between Publics and Platforms
Chapter 4. Sociology and its Platforms
Chapter 5. The Past, Present, and Future of Public Sociology

Chapter 7. Making Platforms Public
Chapter 8. Assembling Public Sociology
