Faculty Stories: Jamie McCallum, Sociology

January 1, 2015

Middlebury College faculty come from many varied backgrounds, but something drew them to this tight-knit community in Vermont. In short video vignettes, "Faculty Stories" gives a taste of the diverse pathways that Middlebury faculty followed to teaching and scholarship at a liberal arts institution.

Meet Jamie McCallum, assistant professor of sociology. A self-described activist, McCallum says that his interest in school was always motivated by social and political issues. Growing up in post-industrial Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, he was drawn to labor issues and eventually wrote a book on the subject. He says that his choice to become a college professor came very gradually after years of experience as a professional photographer and community organizer.
