What Is All This Sweet Work Worth?

The first album by Smart Barker (MDP) is again available at multiple vendors. But the original WIATSWW, produced by Harris London, has been remastered and sounds even better; it includes two bonus tracks, our covers of “Just Like Heaven” and “Till The End Of The Day.” Please check it out!

Textual Scholarship at Widener

I’m very pleased to recognize the achievements of my students Taylor Brown and Kimberlee Roberts, who are the first recipients of the Certificate in Textual Scholarship at Widener University. They were honored last week at the Humanities Division Awards Ceremony–along with other English and Creative Writing students. Taylor is taking her experience with her to Loyola University’s graduate program in digital humanities, while Kim is taking hers to the University of Denver where she will pursue a master’s in Library and Information Science with a specialization in archives.
