The projects below are things I have my name attached to but did not author the content.
The Federalist: with Letters of Brutus (Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought). Edited by: Dr. Terence Ball. Cambridge University Press (June 23, 2003).
I was a fact-checker for many of the footnotes in this textbook. During the Fall 2001 semester of my bachelor’s program at Arizona State University, I served as a Junior Fellow for the Political Science department. Which meant that I basically worked as a research assistant, and Dr. Ball was the professor I worked under. It involved many hours of checking citations and footnotes against the original works cited to ensure the information cited in the footnote was accurate. Phew! Believe me, that was as exhausting to type out as it was to do the actual work! But the experience helped me tremendously later on when I had to conduct my own research in grad school which required countless hours in dusty libraries tracking down books so old they aren’t found in any online catalog.
