I came to Elmira College from California in 1987, and I have been here ever since. In the classroom, my main responsibility is teaching courses that cover the history of Europe since the decline of the Roman Empire. But my interests are pretty wide-ranging, including current events and human rights in the world today (I teach a current events course in Term III and am the faculty advisor to the campus chapter of Amnesty International, for example). The information on this website gives you some idea of the things that I do and that I care about . . .l
