Brent Cebul’s work considers shifts in Americans’ perceptions of the efficacy of the federal government and the free market in shaping economic opportunity in the post-Civil Rights era. He is concerned with the relationship between individuals’ self perceptions, the persistence of localism within American federalism, and changes over time in how Americans have viewed the national government’s proper role in enhancing or limiting economic opportunity, particularly for marginalized or impoverished citizens.
Brent holds a B.A. from Hamilton College and an M.A. from the University of Virginia. His writing has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle.
