I believe in U2 and can't get enough of what Bruce Springsteen described as "some of the most beautiful sonic architecture in rock and roll." U2 are poets, prophets and musical provocateurs, for starters, and I'm working on figuring out everything else they are and have meant to me. I created and direct the U2 Conference; I'm the editor of Exploring U2: Is This Rock 'n' Roll?; and, I'm a curator for the U2: Made In Dublin exhibit at The Little Museum of Dublin. I live in Ohio and teach literature, writing, and theories of interpretation at a small Midwestern university.
