Editorial Board, NANO Crit, New American Notes Online (a peer-reviewed journal)
I also consult with the ACLU and a couple of research organizations with regard to the legalization of marijuana in WA state.
Although I enjoy academic research and exchange, I am more and more interested in public scholarship. My book is a cross-over, designed for both academic and general audiences, because it is focused on several high-impact social and political issues in the last generation.
I'm also interested in the ways that academic scholarship is changing format and the ability to bring work to readers faster and in process. The current process for publication in my field is 18 months - 2 years at the fastest. My contributions as an editorial reviewre for NANO Crit and other journals is about getting work out sooner and readers involved in feedback earlier in the process.
I have presented my work in various public contexts over the last 5 years, including invitational public lectures at the Fall Free for All (Broadway Center), and leading discussions with activist groups and political organizations in the region regarding the legalization of marijuana.
The most rewarding invitation to present my work was to give a TED talk which gives it an international audience.
