New Guest Blogger Ryan T.

By February 6, 2009

Please join us in welcoming the latest guest blogger here at the Juvenile Instructor. Ryan T. describes himself thus:

Hello Juvenile Instructor! I’m Ryan Tobler, an undergrad just winding up my degree in English/History at BYU and nursing ulcers while I wait to hear back on my applications to grad programs in religious and Transatlantic studies.  My areas of interest are still crystallizing, but broadly I study British and American 18th and 19th century intellectual history (generally with a Transatlantic paradigm). More specifically I’m interested in literature and literary figures as public intellectuals, secularization, and cosmopolitanism, especially as all these bear upon religion. These issues typically put me on the more ‘liberal’ and learned fringe of the religion of that period: Unitarians, Universalists, and so on. I enjoy travel and languages, cross-country skiing, ‘canyoneering,’ and play soccer at every available opportunity.

Thanks for having me aboard.

  8. steve: if these “post-doc sharks” can manage to be kind to me (also an undergrad), then I’m sure they won’t have a problem with Ryan (who is much smarter than myself). 🙂
