I am a Professor in the Department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta, and Vice-Dean in the Faculty of Arts.
When I'm not working, which seems like a rare thing these days, I'm all about my children, grandchildren, partner, parents and everyone else in my complicatedly extended family. I love time with friends, food, and fine whisky, literature, film, music, and the visual arts of any kind at any time. I think 1970's Hollywood is the gritty, golden-age of film. My music tastes go to R&B, Funk, Blues, Rock, Alt Country, Folk.
My favourite quote: “The closer you get to Canada, the more things'll eat your horse.” (The Missouri Breaks 1976)
