Michael Stelzer Jocks
I teach history at Robert Morris University, Illinois. Though Modern European History is my specialty, I enjoy studying, pondering and discussing all the Liberal Arts, especially with the inimitable Dr. Peter Stern. I hope one day, someone will use the term ‘polymath’ when describing me, but that might be a bit much. I live in Oak Park, Illinois with my wife (Jenny Jocks Stelzer) and our two girls. This profile picture was taken long before the Turtle existed and has nothing to do with the blog. That is just how I roll….seriously.
