Conference Presentations

Determining the Viability of Programs, or Strategic Planning for the Rest of Us
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (Commission on Colleges), December 6, 2010

Getting to a General Theory of Ritual: The Role of Agency and Intention
American Academy of Religion, November 20, 2007

Tuesday sessions at the AAR tend to be sparsely populated because people have to go home and teach. I therefore posted my paper here, in two audio formats, for those who are interested in hearing it but unable to attend the live session.

Listen to the streaming audio version directly from the website. Requires Real Player, which can be downloaded here. Or select the MP3 version. Right-click the link and save to your computer; then, if you like, save to your I-Pod and listen at your leisure, or play it from your computer's hard drive. You may be able to play this file directly through your web browser, for example if you have the Apple Quicktime plug-in. If you want to hear just one section of the paper, you can select it here:
Here is the handout that I will provide during the live session (pdf format, requires Abode Reader). And here's the text of the paper itself.
