Coming soon to a chapter near you ....

I'm looking forward very keenly to the meeting on the 14th of October, and the chance to connect with everyone, making good a Scroogian pledge to live in the "past, the present, and the future."

I'm open to questions/discussions about any aspect of my teaching, writing, and other nefarious activities, including Arctic exploration, Hip-hop music, Victorian history and culture, early film history, media studies, and Chaucer -- along with the whys, wherefores, and whereabouts of my variegated academic career. In the photo above, you see an artist's depiction of one of my more acute bouts of "Polar Fever" (well, actually you see the "North Pole Giant" from Georges Méliès's 1914 film, "The Conquest of the Pole"). Hope to see everyone there!
