Joseph M. Knippenberg is Professor of Politics at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, where he has taught since 1985. He received his B.A. from Michigan State University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He has published widely in scholarly and journalistic venues on topics in political philosophy, constitutional law, and higher education. He currently sits on the Board of the Association for Core Texts and Courses, and has in the past served as Vice Chair of the Georgia Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and on the Board of the American Academy of Liberal Education. He and his wife currently live in Brookhaven, GA, with a dog, a cat, and a daughter who dearly wants to continue her post-college graduation life somewhere other than the family home, where she has been residing since she was banished from her college campus in the middle of her last semester. We love her, but look forward to the commencement this fall of the in-person portion of her graduate education at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. His son and daughter-in-law live in Athens, GA, which we in this family regard as one of the finest small cities in the U.S. The Knippenbergs endured the quarantine by binge-watching British detective shows on Amazon Prime and (in Joseph’s case) rereading the very lengthy Palliser novels of Anthony Trollope.
