Speaking

Most of my lecture time is reserved for my students, but I also give talks to universities, local churches, writers' conferences, research conferences, senior education forums and other civic organizations.

I am also available for consulting on
  • Environmental ethics and policy
  • Learning to see what we don't see
  • Tool-making and design
  • Cultivating curiosity
  • Great Books and the nourishment of the intellect 
  • Semiotics and urban design

I have given invited talks at the College of William and Mary, Drexel University, Middlebury College, the South Dakota State University, the University of Sioux Falls, the University of Minnesota, Providence College, the University of Navarra, the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, the Stony Brook School, and a number of other schools.
