After completing a BA (Hons) in German and English, and a teaching certification at the University of Bristol, I obtained my Dr. Phil. at the Universität Zürich in 1963. My professional career in Canada and the U.S. includes positions at the University of New Brunswick, the University of Saskatchewan at Regina, the Univeristy of Manitoba, McGill University and a visiting position as Chair of Excellence in the Humanities at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

My major research and publishing activities are in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature of Germany and England with special reference to verbal-visual relationships. This includes not only the emblem, but also modern analogues in advertising and propaganda.

I have written, co-authored, edited or co-edited 30 books and 73 articles and essays. Another 12 publications are forthcoming. I have presented 115 lectures or conference papers.

In addition to research grants from the Canada Council, the SSSHRC, and various Canadian universitites, I was awarded a research fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung, the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and the Konrad Adenauer Forschungspreis.
