Connor is a Section Editor for the paper's Arts & Culture beat and is pursuing an A.B. in History. The editor's decision to concentrate in History stems not only out of a fear of commitment to the less flexible requirements of other concentrations, but also out of deep-seated interests in the readily applicable fields of community planning and economic justice. He enjoys life’s simple pleasures: warm blankets, artisan coffee, early seasons of The X-Files, Pokémon cartridges from the early-to-mid 2000’s, and meticulously organized vinyl record collections.
