Spring 2014 office hours: 9:30 to 11 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, and by appointment.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1992. I have been teaching at NDSU since 1993. In addition to my instructor's role, I coordinate the department's interdisciplinary major and minor in New Media and Web Design. I also am senior editor of the university's publishing division, the Institute for Regional Studies.

As a media historian, my research specialties cover World Wars I and II (1914-1918, 1939-1945), United States frontier journalism during the Long Drive Era (1866-1890), and French journalism, concentrating on the Third Republic (1871-1940). Recently I published a book considering children's activities during the world wars, Children, War and Propaganda.

I teach a variety of mass communication subjects including editing, photography, design, media history and several online classes.

This semester I am teaching COMM 313: Editorial Processes. I will teach COMM 230: Basic Photography for the Mass Media, COMM 313: Editorial Processes and COMM 362: Principles of Design for Print in the spring.
