[Back to Graphic Version]
The graphic which makes up the main part of this page is an adaptation of a work by Victor Vasarely. For more information about Vasarely and the design of this site, press here.
Links on this page are arranged as corresponding to the various areas of the main graphic, as follows:
Rant (Frog): This page contains the advice I want to give to all students in my classes. It is based on my love of folktales, which is related to my work on the Mythology book written with Margaret K. Devinney.
Links (Chain): Here you can find some links I have found especially helpful in my travels on the Internet. Please let me know when you find nonworking links.
Book (Multiple Mythology Book Cover Images): The external link related to any of the book covers takes you to the web site of Oxford University Press and their description of the Mythology book written with Margaret K. Devinney. For other things on the web site related to Mythology, you may want to look under Course Materials for my Mythology Course.
Empty Middle Area (No Graphic): The link here takes you to a page about Bargains with the Devil, a theme discussed in the Mythology book and recently represented by the rock group Tenacious D.
Course Materials (Class Graphic): The material here takes off from complete syllabuses for courses. However, lately I have begun to present my material via WebCT and so the syllabuses in this area are no longer up to date. My courses continue to evolve and develop and (I hope) improve. However, much of the material in my courses as I now give them is available here.
Hungarian Links (Hungarian Flag): A page of links with information about Hungary.
Resources for Students (Treasure Chest): This link takes you to a page of links to help on grammar, writing, and proper documentation of your sources.
Life (Photograph Representing Eva Thury in Venice): About me, and the projects I like to undertake, the writing I am doing.
An Appearance on PBS (Radio): This link takes you the web site of the PBS radio show The Infinite Mind for "Kids and Fire," a broadcast airing the week of October 5, 2005 and the week of December 7, 2005. I talk about fire mythology in my section, though the whole program is very interesting and informative. I enjoyed this appearance because I got to discuss the relationship between works of popular culture like the Harry Potter series and their relation to traditional mythology.
Critical Thinking Web Site (Thinker): This web site was developed under a grant from Drexel's Office of Research and is used to teach Critical Thinking and the Internet. Teachers can email me for a guide to using this site in class, but anyone can look at it and use it to become a more thoughtful consumer of the Internet.
