TCG: Man Made of Birds

Thomas C. Gannon:: I am an Associate Professor of English and Ethnic Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My teaching specializations include Native American Literature(s) and Lit-Crit/Theory.

I am an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (Mnikoju Lakota).

My avocations include life-long obsessions with music (jazz, blues, & metal guitar—& songwriting) and with birding. This latter hobby has wedded nicely with a much more recent one, that of digital photography. But this brief blurb barely scratches the surface of my many (unfortunately often passing) intellectual & artistic enthusiasms, many of which are evidenced in this set of web pages. To paraphrase an old poem of mine, life has steered me into becoming a "jack of all trades, master of one . . . ." Unfortunately, that "one" is probably the only talent I cannot present on this site.
