Carl Weinberg received his PhD in history from Yale University in 1995. He is the author of Labor, Loyalty, and Rebellion: Southwestern Illinois Coal Miners and World War I (Southern Illinois University Press, 2005). He is currently writing a book entitled Red Dynamite: Creationism and Anticommunism in Modern America, under contract with Johns Hopkins University Press. He has taught US history for fourteen years, currently teaches about public policy in the Political and Civic Engagement Program (PACE) at IU, and is affiliated with the IU History Department.
As a member of the LAMP faculty, Professor Weinberg teaches L416, The Meat We Eat. His interest in that subject arose from his activism in the labor movement as well as his study of the Georgia chicken industry while teaching college in Dahlonega, Georgia for eight years. His course is a multifaceted study of meat, integrating science, history, business, labor, literature, and film. It combines classroom instruction—focused on student-centered learning—with field trips to farm and factory.
