Dr. Walker teaches history and seminar.

BardVERSE: What’s your favorite book you’ve read at Bard and why?

Dr. Walker: I really loved Macbeth. It is about these monstrous, evil people, but Shakespeare manages to give them very human emotions that remind me that all of us share similar feelings regardless of time and place.

BardVERSE: What topic would you like to write about but haven’t yet?

Dr. Walker: I want to write about local government and the intense conflicts that people experience over issues like decorative fences and playgrounds.


BardVERSE: What do you find most gratifying about writing?

Dr. Walker: New ideas form as the paper fills up.


BardVERSE: Give one tip for writing a good essay.

Dr. Walker: Write quickly. Edit slowly.
