Welcome to my Web Site. It is primarily a teaching Web Site. It includes various materials--course descriptions, web course-enhancement projects and syllabi--for courses I teach in my fields: American Literature, Theatre and Drama, and Bibliography and Textual Studies.  I have added a section on Special Features that are related to my teaching. The first entry is about Mark Twain's "The War Prayer." A third section highlights the presentations about teaching and research made by members of the department who participated in the Faculty Symposium I created and directed.
