I am presently director of Academic Computing Services and Digital Library Projects for Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.  Prior to coming to Wesleyan, I worked for several years at Harvard University, with the Instructional Computing Group at FAS Computer Services and with the Du Bois Institute on projects including the Black Periodical Literature Project, Baobab African Art Database and the Encarta Africana . I have also done consulting work for colleges and universities on IT issues and structures and as well for Dynamic Diagrams, an information design company in Providence, Rhode Island.  Before I discovered that computers were as interesting as ideas in and of themselves,  I studied American Literature and Literary Theory at Duke University, and earned my undergraduate degree in philosophy from Dartmouth College.  Time permitting, I read and write about the relationship of information technology to various theories of meaning and culture. My resume is on-line at http://mroy.web.wesleyan.edu/michael_roy.pdf .
