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 Director of the Center for Digital Learning at Geneseo. I teach courses in Victorian Literature, Humanities, and Digital Humanities.

Current projects


My blogstuff is scattered in various spaces, including the Center for Digital Learning blog, 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.
