Contacting Professor Lanier


My office is located in the basement of Hamilton-Smith Hall in the Graduate Office. You can enter the outer office without knocking and sign up for an appointment on the sheet beside my door. I will keep a file of handouts for the class on my door, so if you miss class you can pick up any handouts you've missed there.  You can also download and print off most handouts from the "class handouts" page on this website.  The Graduate Office is open from Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM, so plan accordingly if you need to leave something for me. Do not leave papers under the door.

Office Hours:

Even if you are seeing me during my office hours, it is important that you sign up on my appointment sheet for a time slot.  I can make an appointment with you for Mondays and Wednesdays.  I will not be available for any reason on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
English Office:

If you need to leave something for me after the Graduate Office has closed or on a day I am not on campus, please do so in the English Office, 113 Hamilton-Smith. Please give your paper or leave your message with the secretary at the front desk. This office closes daily at 4:30 PM sharp, so please plan accordingly.


My office phone is 862-3796, and I have voice-mail.


My campus e-mail address is  I check this address once each day, so it is a very reliable way to contact me.
