A ‘lecture list’ of colloquia and conferences at which I am speaking or participating, presenting research in a range of fields of knowledge in which I have expertise.  Upcoming publications of past conference proceedings and articles related to earlier presentations are also gathered here.  I’ve also included links to conference sites, host institutions, and, where possible, podcasts of events.
