A senior lecturer in British and Commonwealth studies at the University of Versailles, I now mostly contribute to the French Wikipedia. My contributions of significant new material to the English Wikipedia have slowed to a trickle. To be honest, my interest in a variety of highly-specialised topics that I used to contribute to has dwindled, and I don't have the time to remain actively involved.

My barnstarsEdit

  The Original Barnstar
For your amazing work including, among other things, countering systemic bias and having an apparent treasure trove of references for the contemporary articles that WP lacks. Here's to hoping you come back. Xavexgoem (talk) 18:51, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
  The Running Man Barnstar
The Running Man Barnstar may be awarded for distinguished efforts in sports-related articles. This barnstar is intended for those who give 110% in order to advance Wikipedia's coverage of the world of sports. Bib (talk) 11:11, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
