Biographical/Historical note

Paul Brians was a professor of English at Washington State University from 1968 to 2008; he notes his focus as being "in literature outside the traditional Anglo-American canon (postcolonial, European, Asian, and other literatures, plus science fiction) and in interdisciplinary humanities studies and the history of ideas."

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of twenty CDs and DVDs, plus three self-published books. Most CDs and DVDs are labeled with three-digit numbers printed on them; these identifiers are relics of an early MASC digital images storage system and have no relation either to Dr. Brians' original filing or MASC's current ordering. The three digit number is included here only for ease of identifying discs.

Most of the CDs and DVDs in this collection contain photographs taken by Brians; also included in several cases are websites which Dr. Brians created from them for classes or for public use. In addition, three of the CDs/DVDs contain videos; two of these are photo slideshows with music, and the third is a presentation done by Dr. Brians primarily about Pullman and Washington State University in the 1960s.

Arrangement note
