My Teaching

As a teacher in the department, I am responsible for most of our courses on Old and Middle English, the History of the Book, and the grammar and history of the English language. I also share responsibility for our first year introductory course, English 1900, and a second year poetry class, English 2100.

I often direct senior undergraduate essays or M.A. or M.Sc. courses and theses in my areas of research interest. I am always willing to consider taking on good new students. If you are interested in pursuing a senior level or graduate programme with me, please arrange an appointment to discuss your plans.

These pages describe the courses I teach. On this page you can find syllabi for courses I have taught since Fall 2006. You also can find information on courses I taught from 1992-2004 and from 2004-2006 by following the appropriate link.

Students should also be aware of my Academic Policies. They also may find some of my tutorials useful.

If you are in any doubt about anything discussed in these pages, please get in touch with me.
