I am presently writing about Melville’s influence on American art. I was trained in Shakespeare and medieval studies at the University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1970) and have taught at both the university and independent school level. I directed the first undergraduate foreign study program from the University of Florida, Florida Abroad at Utrecht, and set up the New Cultural Experiences Program for Carroll College. My interests in interdisciplinary and foreign study were formed as an undergraduate at Earlham College.
