So I spent what seemed like an inordinately large amount of time today learning how to set up this website. Why did I bother? Well, I’ll be starting a tenure-track position at the University of Maine in January 2016, and it is my hope that this site will grow with me as I enter the next phase of my career. I’d also like to share my experiences of being a Canadian scholar moving to the United States. I plan on posting regularly on a variety of subjects, from everyday shenanigans, to what’s going on in the classroom, to my latest historical musings. Check back often and see what I’m up to.
