About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the spectre of global pandemics. At LMU Munich's Amerika-Institut, where I tutor composition and poetics, I'm anatomizing the sonnets of E. A. Robinson for my dissertation. I also teach at M√ľnchner Volkshochschule and Amerikahaus.


Aktion zum Erhalt des Amerika Hauses

Dear Public Affairs, United States Consulate General, Munich:

Knowing the iconic presence the Amerika Haus has had here since its inception (and being aware that its continuance is imminently threatened), I am disappointed to have learned today from your office that ("as a diplomatic institution") you are unable to even acknowledge, let alone promote, today's demonstration of support for its programs. After all, this vital intercultural institution--which has done (and continues to do) so much for American interests--was founded (and abandoned) by the U.S. government.
