I have been teaching Russian language and literature at Middlebury for the past 35 years. I have published extensively on Russian language, translated the works of Andrei Bely into English. I am also the editor of the Middlebury Studies in Russian Language and Literature. In the past few years I have taught seminars on the works of Dan Brown, including 33 Keys to Unlocking the The Lost Symbol: A Reader's Companion to Dan Brown's Novel. I use technology extensively in and out of the classroom that can be accessed at my homepage.
