I'm a wayward Renaissance guy who teaches film, comparatist approaches to lit and philosophy, and who actually works most directly on Francis Bacon (hence, love of a certain pork product, Irish artist, and Lord Chancellor). Beyond that, my interest in technology, aside from its inevitability, stems from a desire to find a set of tools that actually allow deep scholarship to happen in more flexible forms than the monograph (whether electronic, print, or hybrid), and second, to create tools that enable my students to do work that can, over time and in the aggregate, honestly use coursework to assist the scholarly projects I value and which extend beyond the classroom. My principle digital projects are an eJournal -- apollonejournal.org -- and a set of mapping tools for inquiring into oceanic sovereignty in early European empire (currently in beta) at wavesofempire.org.
