nulla dies sine linea


This site offers 'slices of life' from my public-facing academic activities, and 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 select activities and events at Georgia Tech. And a third section adds some occasional black-and-white photography. All opinions featured on this site are my own, or those of the authors featured/cited, not those of my employer or the members of the organizations to which I belong.


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