Thoreau's Walden


My most recent scholarly project is a book on the physicality of Walden Pond (the limnology, hydrology, geology, meteorology, acoustics, and optics of Massachusetts's deepest lake) and how this inspired Thoreau's masterpiece of the same name. The book will be published by Harvard University Press with a manuscript deadline of spring semester 2013.

Oddball artwork always makes me wonder, which I suppose it it's purpose. All photos courtesy of University Communications unless otherwise noted.
