Scanning cross fragment in Ruthwell Welcome to my teaching Home Page (Until recently this has also been my research blog; new postings can be found at my research blog, http://dpod.kakelbont.ca/ my previous research/blogs can be found here and here).
I am a Professor in the Department of English at the University of Lethbridge. In the department, I am responsible for teaching most of our courses on medieval literature, the History of the Book, and the English language. I also share responsibility for our first year introductory course, English 1900, and a second year poetry class, English 2100. You can find out more about my teaching by following this link.

My main research interests include Old English language and literature, the history of the book, editorial and textual scholarship, humanities computing, and reception-oriented criticism. My current research projects include

In addition to these research projects, I have been active for the last several years in academic and research administration. I am currently co-president (English) of the Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour l’étude des médias interactifs, a Canada-wide association that both draws together humanists who are engaged in digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, and creation and participates in international efforts to call attention to the importance of digital technology in the practice of the humanities through partnerships with other agencies. I am also co-editor of Digital Studies / Le champ numérique and associate editor of Digital Medievalist (http://www.digitalmedievalist.org/journal/), a journal I helped found. In previous years I have been Chair and CEO of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) (http://www.tei-c.org/) (2006-2010), founding director of the Digital Medievalist Community of Practice (2003-2009), and chair of my department (2004-2007).
