I am a two-time recipient of the Excellence in Teaching Award at the University Of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, most recently in 2013. I have been shortlisted four times for the Distinguished Teacher Award at the University of Waterloo, in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, and again in 2018. My book on Shakespeare, Shifting Perspectives and the Stylish Style: Mannerism in Shakespeare and His Jacobean Contemporaries is published by the University of Toronto Press. I have taught at Western University, Carleton University, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Waterloo and in the ‘Classical Pursuits’ Program at the University of St Michael’s College (at the University of Toronto). I currently teach in the Human Sciences Program and the Department of English at St Jerome’s University (at the University of Waterloo). I have also lectured regularly in the Metro Toronto Library ‘Great Books’ Lecture Series. Besides an edition of Ben Jonson’s comedy The Alchemist (Broadview Press, 2018), my latest book, Reading the Humanities: How I Lost My Modernity (Rock’s Mills Press, 2017), is a virtual tour of the Great Books that offers a fresh perspective on our contemporary predicament by examining the contrasting postures of modernity and tradition.
