Hello, from KY United States

I am a college freshman from Kentucky and aspiring historian. My particular fields of interest are labor history, history of working class politics and political movements.

I am also a Marxist and use Marx's materialist conception of history/theory of historical materialism to give me some framework for interpreting historical developments. Not sure if that's generally accepted here or not. I guess I have an interest in what you would call "social history" because my interests are in social dynamics and conditions and how people interact through that medium. I have less of an interest in more traditional methodologies.

I also have an interest in sociology and all other social sciences generally.
