I am a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I’m also a (mostly non-practicing) lawyer. My work examines questions related to economic sociology, urban sociology, environmental history, and sociolegal studies.

This site provides information about my research and writing, as well as some other work that I do on the side and have done in the past.  Occasionally I post to my blog, and among other ways to connect, you can find me on twitter at @nate_ela.

Here’s a recent version of my CV.
