"Though a senior member of the English department, I am especially interested in and committed to teaching lower division courses. In these classes I endeavor to make sure students leave every session feeling that our work on literary texts has put them in contact with real people and real life questions, that it has triggered their imaginations and built their intellectual confidence."
