I’m an amateur beekeeper, gardener, museum enthusiast, and English professorblogbryan at California Lutheran University, where I coordinate and care for the campus garden and teach courses in science and literature, environmental literature, Darwin, and the history of science. The Ox-Born Bee is my personal blog devoted to playing with source material in the history, literature, philosophy, and art of science. My posts are meant to bookmark ideas I have as I read, think, and teach about these subjects. It is also a writing experiment in creative non-fiction and popular science writing. I welcome feedback on anything from ideas, to things you think I should read or write about, to matters of style. If you like something, please repost it or tweet it!
