Assessment (Taken from 1986 Curriculum Vitae):

“I have acted as assessor or reader for articles in the following learned journals: Studies in Scottish Literature; Ariel; Philological Quarterly and Studies in 18th Century Culture. I have acted on several occasions as external assessor for the National Endowment for the Humanities (USA) with respect to their bibliographic and research tools program. I have done similar assessment on one occasion for SSHRC (Canada). I have also acted as an assessor for papers delivered at the annual conference of the Association of Canadian University Teachers of English (ACUTE) and as an external assessor for individuals being considered for promotion to full professor at various Canadian Universities. I also served for a number of years as member of the Council of the Humanities Institute, University of Calgary; I have assessed numerous applications for residential and post-graduate fellowships in that Institute”

Community Service


(taken from 1986 Curriculum Vitae): “I have taught in the ordinary and honours degree programs in English of all of the universities with which I have been associated, offering a range of topics from Early English poetry to the 20th century novel. Certain areas relating to my research interests have been taught with greater frequency than others. These include: The Johnson circle, the 18th century novel; the Scottish tradition in 19th century literature – Scott, Carlyle etc.; and Shakespeare. I have taught and supervised at the graduate level in the Universities of St. Andrew’s, Dundee and Calgary. Courses offered at the graduate level have included: Pope and Johnson, the Shakespearian scholarly tradition, and analytical and descriptive bibliography. I have supervised theses, at both the MA and PhD levels, dealing with 17th century, 18th Century and Scottish topics: e.g. Glanvil, Ars Moriendi prose, Earl of Buchan, The Scots Magazine, James Boswell and R.B.C. Grahame. I was closely associated with the development of the PhD Program in English at the University of Calgary, both as secretary and Chairman of the department Graduate Committee. I was once of the original three scholars permitted to supervise in this program. I have supervised or examined, to date, over 30 graduate students.”
