This website presents a portal to my projects and activities.  As such, it leads to information on my writings, lectures, travel and fieldwork, current positions, research centers, and editorial contributions, as well as to other sites that focus more specifically on each of these areas.  Visitors are especially encouraged to follow links leading to open-access items and facilities that have been created for the sake of supporting research in and by the international community.


I am vitally interested in the oldest and the newest of humankind’s communicative technologies, Oral Tradition and the Internet, and especially in their unexpected similarities.
