Let me introduce myself....

On the left is a much younger version of your teacher, Dr. Wheeler, standing in the sculpture garden of Caius Cibber behind Belvoir Castle. During the summer of 1995, I spent a month in England examining the Lansdowne Manuscript of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales as part of my MA research at West Texas A&M University and Harlaxton College near Grantham in Lincolnshire, England. On the right, we have an older and grayer picture of him from May 2006, sitting near the reconstruction site of the Athenian Acropolis, where he traveled as part of an ACA grant on classical studies.

If you are reading this page, you are either (a) one of my students, or (b) hopelessly lost on the web. You are welcome to browse here in either case.

I have taught college-level courses at West Texas A & M University (from 1993 until 1995) and the University of Oregon (from 1995 until the spring term of 2002). In the fall term of 2002, I began teaching at Gonzaga University and from there, I moved to Carson-Newman University in Tennessee, where I am currently an associate professor.

Here are the courses I currently teach at Carson-Newman University.

In terms of scholarship, my primary interest is fourteenth-century medieval literature (especially Chaucer), though I am also interested in medieval theories of rhetoric, in computer-assisted composition, textual editing, the Bible as literature, and many other areas.
