ABOUT

Medievalitas: This site offers information about my public-facing and academic activities and offers commentary, from others as well as me, on diverse examples of medievalism, the creative and critical reception of medieval culture in postmedieval times. Other blog sections offer information related to my activities at Georgia Tech. And a third section adds some black-and-white photography. All opinions expressed on this site are my own, not those of my employer or the members of the organizations to which I belong.

Biosketch: I have the privilege of serving as Associate Dean for Faculty Development in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at Georgia Tech. I previously served at Chair and Professor in Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication, and I have held administrative and faculty appointments at Western Michigan University, the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, the University of Northern Iowa, and the Pädagogische Hochschule/Technische Universität Dresden. My scholarship and teaching centers on medieval culture, medievalism, higher education leadership & management, the interconnections between humanistic inquiry and science/technology, reception study, and the formation of cultural memories and identities.
