I sustain a long-term interest in the history and ramifications of the concept of genius. That is one of the themes of my book on Nietzsche, Young Nietzsche, Becoming a Genius. It also appears in my essay on filmmaker Akira Kurosawa.
Currently I am working on a book about early theories of popular sovereignty, including chapters on 17th century thinkers, including John Locke.
Formerly I worked in teaching effectiveness at UCD. I still give faculty development workshops in other venues, including Boot Camp for Profs.
