Teaching Videos: These are unusual classes, deliberately containing more novelty and lecture than my classes usually do. However, both are designed to whet students’ enthusiasm for medieval texts that they might at first find daunting. I find that introducing a sequence of texts by providing a bit of historical context as well as visual and auditory experiences, help students “invest” in these texts.

Editing Wiki Pages: Last year I participated in a "Wiki Write In" at the International Medieval Conference. Wikipedia flags editors if they try to change too much at one time. The idea is that the pages should be crowd-sourced. Hence, I am slowly correcting citations and text on the Courtly Love page. I have also created a wiki for the Findern MS and am acquiring basic information that I will be linking to the page.

This is the largest medieval conference in the United States. It occurs annually each year in Kalamazoo, MI. Since it is held at the same time, on the same campus, housing us in the same dorms each year, I have created a quick webpage to help myself (and newcomers to the conference) pack and plan.
