I am known to friends, family and colleagues as Ted Morgan. I grew up in South Hadley, Massachusetts, went to Oberlin College from 1964 to 1968 --a time that had considerable impact on my political outlook and my continuing activism-- did my graduate work in Politics at Brandeis University from 1970 to 1975, taught for a year at Oberlin College (1975-76) and have been a professor of Political Science at Lehigh University since fall, 1976. While I have taught about 17 different classes at Lehigh, I have taught classes on Social Movements and Legacies of the 1960s, and Propaganda, Media, and American Politics for some 25 years or more. In recent years, I have taught a class on Organizing for Democracy. My writing and my teaching --as well as my active engagement in local, regional and national issues-- has been informed by my passionate belief in democracy, real democracy that empowers the people.
