About me

Gender MALE
Introduction Dormgrandpop is Professor John Richardson. Until recently I was Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore, with joint appointments in “Residential College 4” and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Now my sole appointment is as Adjunct Professor in Residental College 4, I choose the name “Dormgrandpop” when I began writing this blog in 2004. This was two years after bginning what became a nearly ten year term as American University’s first resident faculty member, occupying an apartment in AU’s largest undergraduate dormitory, Anderson Hall. The name seemed to capture my concept of a faculty member in residence’s role well. Since settling in Singapore, I have taken a break from my Dormgrandpop postings. Now I hope to resume. I have been considering and receiving advice on whether I should adopt a new name.
