I am the editor of "Vestiges[?] and the Debates Before Darwin" (2000), "British Responses to Natural Selection, 1859-1871" (2001), and "Creationism and Scriptural Geology, 1817 - 1857" (in prep.). I also authored the entry on the history of biological sciences for "The Readers Guide to British History" (2001), and essays on Adam Sedgwick and Robert Chambers for "The Dictionary of Nineteenth Century British Philosophers" (in press) for which I also was the contributing editor for entries relating to evolutionary thought. I am currently studying Sedgwick's opposition to evolutionary ideas, Higher Criticism and Utilitarian ethics and the conflict between St George Jackson Mivart[?]'s Catholicism and his evolutionism.
I like to spend my time listening to Classical and folk music (Celtic[?] & American), reading, tinkering with computers (Linux) and I appreciate more than the odd pint of Guinness!
I'm also in the process of putting together a Wiki related to Darwin and Darwinism for the classes I teach. See DarwinWiki
