WORKS IN PROGRESS:
The University as Sacred Canopy: Constituting the Global Knowledge Society (with J. W. Meyer). An examination of the worldwide explosion in university curricula and enrollments 1900 to the present, arguing that both trends represent globalization-fueled extensions of core Modern cultural assumptions: that nature operates according to universalistic, integrated, and rational rules and that humans can discover, know, and learn how to use such rules through rational endeavors. Explored with longitudinal and comparative data from university course catalogs, directories, and yearbooks.
