About me

Since 1985, I've taught at SUNY Geneseo, where I served as interim provost in 2016-17 and chair of the English department from 2010 to 2015. I'm currently Professor of English and Assistant to the Provost for Digital Learning and Scholarship. I teach courses in Victorian Literature, Humanities, and Digital Humanities.

Current projects


My blogstuff is scattered in various spaces, including the SUNY Geneseo wiki and group blogs within the English @ SUNY Geneseo network such as Digital Humanities at Geneseo and Metagogy.


From 2002 to 2010, I chaired SUNY Geneseo's Academic Program Assessment Committee and built a wiki-based assessment platform designed to promote a recording rather than a reporting approach to assessment. I continue to believe that done right, assessment resists rather than promotes the corporatization of higher education.
