Welcome to the website for Michael McGowan. I appreciate your interest in the classes I teach, the activities I lead, and the research I conduct. This website is a work in progress, as links and information will be added later for future classes. When complete, each class page will give students access to the syllabus, reading lists, audio and/or video files of lectures, and important announcements. So feel free to check back often for updates.  
Please browse at will, and don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. If you're new to the site, you can begin with one of the icons below.
