Email is the best way to reach me:


If you would like to call me, please contact the administrative staff in the Department of Modern Languages (405-325-6181) for my cell number.


I am also on Skype: joe.sullivan1348






For Fall 2016, my office hours are Fridays 12:45-1:45 in Kaufman Hall 216. Our building is currently undergoing a dusty and often loud renovation, however, so I might be holding my office hours occassionally out of the building. Therefore, it is always a good idea to contact me ahead of time if you'd like to see me.

(If we can't find a mutually convenienient time to meet on campus, I am available to meet with you over Skype most days.)



Camino de Santiago

Last Updated: 01 December 2016

The Camino de Santiago is the ultimate visual feast for professional medievalist and hiker alike. I hiked most of the Camino Frances with my wife, Dianna, in June 2015 and hiked the rest of the French Way on my own in July and August 2016.

I'll be giving a talk on the Camino in the Norman, Oklahoma West-side library (across from Sam' Club and the mall)  on Friday, 2 December 2016 at 6:15 P.M. The talk will be just slightly academic (i.e. about the medieval artistic marvels along the way) but mostly travelogue, with comments about the kind of people you'll meet, where you'll stay, and with tips about what you''ll want to think about if you are planning your own pilgrimage. Stayed tuned here for more pictures, Camino packing list (below, at bottom), and more! [Picture above, right is on a country road in Galicia in North-West Spain. Galicia looks like Ireland, but with mountains!]   

This man and his little dog invited us into his house for a nice cold cerveza.
