    • "Whether we like it or not, we live at a time when borders and frontiers become more tenuous by the minute. I am excited about teaching at UT Dallas because we consider science and technology from the perspective of the humanities, and vice versa. In a global society, it is essential to learn how to look over one's shoulder. This is why I seek to give my students the tools to navigate beyond the 'Pillars of Hercules'."

    • "I was among the first arts and humanities faculty at UT Dallas in 1975. My students and colleagues have brought me many joys, especially the former students who have kept in touch over the past 36 years. I have particularly enjoyed the opportunity to make music on campus with my Musica Nova ensemble and to have several of my works performed and sometimes premiered here. After the next 36 years, I will be 101, at which point I hope I can afford to retire."
