“I’m Nathan Schneider, a writer, editor, and professor of media studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. I’ve published a book each on God and the Occupy movement. Writing articles for a variety of publications—like Harper’s, The Nation, Vice, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and The Catholic Worker—keeps my notebooks filled. The column I write for the Catholic weekly America feeds my faith. Editing the online religion magazine Killing the Buddha keeps me odd, and Waging Nonviolence, a publication I co-founded, keeps me up on struggles for justice around the world.
I suppose what I’m after is the chronicling of ideas, of perfect worlds, of ordinary imaginations in practice. My method is speculative. Every word is hypothesis—while recognizing fearfully that with even the most casual remark we are building ourselves and our world irrevocably.”
