Looks like the good folks at Duke University’s Center for Instructional Technology put my presentation “Fragmented Identities: A Domain of One’s Own” up on YouTube. Quite frankly, I was afraid to watch the video because I have fond memories of … Continue reading

Sometime in November or December of this past year Serena told be that there was a core, underground group of Bryan Alexander fans here at UMW. It doesn’t entirely surprise me given I’m one myself, but I found that the … Continue reading
