I have had the pleasure of teaching a variety of courses over the years. I am slowly migrating those materials onto this website, if only to simplify my own maintenance of these materials. Fellow faculty should feel free to adapt / adopt any of the materials included here. No attribution is required – but it would be great to get a note from you – it will make my dean happy.
I maintain a separate, dedicated teaching site so that students can access the materials they need no matter where they are. While I try to make as much as possible available publicly, both for students in my courses as well as to interested others, some course materials must remain behind the university paywall (aka Moodle) due to copyright restrictions. (I take fair use seriously.) If you are a visiting student or scholar and would like access to those materials, please get in touch with me.

- There are some things all students in my courses need, or want to know. They can be found here. One of those things is how to navigate JSTOR.
- Teaching Statement – coming soon.
- If you don’t know about Open Culture, then you should take a look. A variety of materials – audio books, textbooks – are available there. In particular, I regularly use their archive of films for teaching.
