Thanks for visiting my Web site! I hope you find it helpful and informative concerning what I do, in terms of teaching and research interests, broken down by category in the toolbar above (and to the left on this “Home” page). I will try to keep the sections current, although some may be “under construction” at the moment or become slightly out of date at times. So, if there is more I can tell you about anything I’m into (whether you’re a colleague, student, or “civilian”), please feel free to use the contact info provided in the “About” section. –GNB

“There are many great authors of the past who have survived centuries of oblivion and neglect, but it is still an open question whether they will be able to survive an entertaining version of what they have to say.” –Hannah Arendt
