Welcome--this material highlights my academic interests and experiences, including courses taught during my career at the University of Idaho 1987-2020. [Note: it's uncertain whether I'll be able to maintain this website after June 2020, due to retirement and perhaps lack of access to an up-to-date version of Dreamweaver that I've used for these webpages.] I also have a UI faculty profile on the Department of English site. See weblinks below for information on related programs, colleagues and students. For the curious, here are several photos of me in the UI library, in the University Honors Program Center (I worked in honors administration 1994-2013,with 15 years as director of the UHP) and in my prior office in Brink Hall .

The 'woodcut' style painting via this weblink was done by my son Ben at age 14--entitled "grandfathers" in tribute to a bookplate designed by his maternal grandfather Harry B. Flesher [top image via weblink] that represents strands in my paternal and maternal heritage: I am a member of the Sealaska Corporation (Alaska Native, Tsimshian) as well as an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa (North Dakota). My parents met at Haskell Institute (tribal school in Lawrence, Kansas).
