1 September 2019

On 31 December 2009 I retired from California State University, Chico, and am now associated with the University as a Professor Emeritus of Anthropology.

PLEASE NOTE: this is an on-going "work-in-progress" documenting cruises since 2004 that I have made presentations on, with emphasis on "Peoples and Cultures of the Pacific" as well as World War II. Various cruise itineraries have also included lectures on Paul Gauguin, Charles Darwin as well as Science, Technology, and Creativity. I have lectured on, or will lecture [as indicated] on, selected itineraries of the following ships and in alphabetical order they are: Amsterdam (2008, 2013, 2015, & 2016), Maasdam (2018a & 2018b), Noordam (2016), Ocean Princess (2015) (note: formerly known as the Tahitian Princess), Oosterdam (2012 [2020]),Pacific Princess (2006), PaulGauguin (2007, 2016, & 2017), Prinsendam (2009), Queen Elizabeth (2012), Queen Elizabeth 2 (2007), Queen Victoria(2011), Rhapsody of the Seas(2011), Rotterdam (2010),Ryndam (2008), SapphirePrincess (2007 & 2014), Seabourn Sojourn (2017 & 2018), Spirit of Oceanus (2009), Star Princess (2012), Statendam (2013, 2014, & 2015), Tahitian Princess(2004 & 2005) (note: now known as the Ocean Princess), Viking Sun (2018 [2020]), Volendam(2010 & 2014), and Zaandam (2008 & 2011). In 2016 and in 2017 I was a designated a "Smithsonian Journeys Expert" on the Paul Gauguin for a "Voyage" to French Polynesia. In 2020 I will be the Smithsonian Journeys Expert for Normandy: A One-Week Stay In France. Since 2009, my wife Carol Urbanowicz ("Sadie"), has also made presentations on selected cruise itineraries.

This particular page is updated on an occasional basis and includes academic publications, tourist information, various web pages, as well as various items that might be found in a city,county, college, or university library. The following words of thedistinguished Pacific scholar O. H. K. Spate [1911-2000] arewell worth considering as you peruse this page:

"If it would take a lifetime to visit all the shores and islands of the Pacific, one sometimes feels it would take nine lives to master fully the vasty literature of the deep. All that the explorer can do is to mark some positions and take some soundings.... [stress added]." Oskar Hermann Khristian Spate, 1979, The Spanish Lake (University of Minnesota Press), page x.
