News Media

I strive to offer knowledgeable perspectives to journalists reporting on the Amish and other plain people. My commentary has informed a variety of topics – from technology usage to horse-and- buggy crashes, and from healthcare practices to contextual details for breaking news. My commentary pulls from a(n):

  • Encyclopedic knowledge of particular plain groups and their practices.
  • Familiarity with conflicts at the intersection of plain people’s practices and public life.
  • Commitment to even-handed assessments that avoid stereotypical clichés.
  • Insider-outsider positionality as both a scholar and an adherent of the plain Anabaptist people.

Journalists seeking knowledgeable guidance for plain people-related questions are welcome to contact me. In my ongoing quest to offer fair representation, I invite dialogue with readers so I can better incorporate diverse perspectives into my commentary.
