Michael Boughn is a writer and independent scholar who has been teaching part time at the University of Toronto for 12 years. His most recent book of poems, Dislocations in Crystal, was published in 2003 by Coach House Books in Toronto. His interest in the forms of post-modernism has shaped his approach to teaching literary studies, whether it's the history of children's literature or recent developments in fiction.

Current Projects

I am currently working on a piece that compares the vocal music of Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker, looking at the ways each realizes aspects of Modernity and Post-modernity, especially in relation to the troubled question of beauty. I am also at work on a "post-Lucretian faux micro-epic" called Cosmographia.
