1999-Present
Web Designer, Stanford English Department
In conjunction with Professor Diane Middlebrook, I created a website for an introductory seminar on Ovid's Metamorphoses. The nature of the World Wide Web reflects the primary metaphor of the poem; as such, I devised a system for integrating web technology into the literary criticism of the students, through the posting of assignments on-line and use of web resources in the research, development, and implementation of ideas.
