Personal/Political Essays

Most of my writing has been for academic and political journals, but occasionally I've turned to more self-consciously personal essays. Some of these essays also touch on political topics -- the personal does turn out to be political, after all....


Many people reach this page via a Web search for "personal essays" or "political essays." I'm glad for your visit.

However, if you're looking for an essay to pass off as one of your own for a school assignment, I don't think you'll find much of use. I also don't like someone using my work without attribution.

If your need for a homework shortcut stems from dissatisfaction with your education, check out these education activism sites.
