September 2010: I am back from my research leave and again chairing the department and teaching. Classes this term are Anglo-Saxon Literature and J.R.R. Tolkien.


A new edition of Beowulf and the Critics is in press, as are articles in the Journal of English and Germanic Philology, Modern Philology and English Studies. Soon this page will have links to all of my publications that are available on line (note: some of these may require institutional subscriptions for access).


A new audio course, Tolkien and the West, is also in press.


In June 2011 I will be the academic leader for two Scholarly Sojourns, one that explores Anglo-Saxon England, and another that recreates the Canterbury Tales pilgrimmage. More information at Scholarly Sojourns.
