Footnotes from the British Underground

This blog began as venue for my stories as I traveled in Africa. 18 months later, I return to it as I travel to study as a Marshall Scholar in the United Kingdom. My hope is that this blog can be a conduit for you - my family, friends and secret/strange admirers - to track my movements, see a photo or two and get a glimpse of my days in the UK. Apologies once again to Dostoevsky for the blog's name...

After graduating from Notre Dame, I'm off to England for graduate study. I'll be studying for a M.A. in International Politics and Security Studies. When not studying, I'm continuing to coordinate Uganda-CAN's efforts to end the 20-year war in northern Uganda!


The Democratic Moment...

First off, Happy New Year! I'm in South Bend for the start of January, but back to Britain soon...

Yesterday's swearing in of the first-ever woman Speaker of the House was quite exciting, coupled with the Democrats' takover of Congress. These first weeks will be telling of whether the Dems will have the spine and soul to advance an bold egalitarian, humanitarian agenda or whether they'll backtrack to a politics of convenience. Let's hope the former wins out.
