Mr. Bryce North
It seems that fate brought me to Huston-Tillotson University. Born and bred in New Orleans, Louisiana, I taught at Southern University at New Orleans for 13 years. Hurricane Katrina changed everything, and I washed here to Austin, Texas.
Since joining the English faculty, I have established the Huston-Tillotson University Film Society, as well as initiating a new course offering, Literature through Film. I love world travel, scuba diving (I am a Padi Dive master), gourmet dining (I write restaurant reviews); and Maya culture fascinates me (I have driven to Guatemala twice). In 1990 while living in Chiapas, Mexico, I helped write and film a documentary, Life and Death Among the Highland Maya of Southern Mexico. In 1993, while still in Chiapas, I witnessed the Zapatista Uprising on a first hand basis and recorded the war in an article, “The Insurrection in Chiapas.”
My education includes a B.A. from Randolph-Macon College, a year of graduate work at the University of New Orleans and a master’s degree from the University of Virginia. My academic specialties include Film, Multicultural Studies, Literature, and English Composition.
