I teach in the English Department of Calvin College and oversee the Rhetoric Center. My book, Middle English Marian Lyrics, is ranked 1,585,668th at Amazon. I think sales will pick up when the movie comes out.

I often host Inner Compass, an interview show produced at Calvin and aired on PBS station WGVU in West Michigan. Selected episodes air in more than 60 cities. If your local PBS station isn't showing IC, you should turn off the TV and go read a book. To hear audio or view podcasts of the show, Visit the iTunes music store (downloads are free) or use this URL with your favorite podcasting software: http://www.calvin.edu/innercompass/icvideo_feed.xml.

Here's an old Honors Convocation talk I gave at Calvin.
