I believe the boundaries between academic subjects are too often arbitrary and artificial. I find joy exploring the junctions between intersecting areas of the Humanities and Arts.
I have followed several life-long dreams – archaeologist, writer, historian – while teaching the last twenty-five years at Stanford University.
I am indebted and grateful to hundreds of students young and old over the years who have taught me as much as I have taught them.
