Gareth Evans

Gareth Evans joined the Hutton Honors College Faculty in 2007. He has a Ph.D. in English and a Master's degree in Library and Information Science. He currently teaches the following three classes: 21st-Century American Fiction; Twice-Told Tales, which examines how recent writers and film makers revise and re-imagine work by Austen, Dante, Kipling, and Shakespeare; and Madness and Melancholy, which focuses predominantly on the period from ancient Greece to the Renaissance.

He serves on the selection committees for the Cox Legacy Scholarship and the Burnett/Masters Scholarship. His canonical tastes and catholic interests are on display in his enthusiasm for Henry James, Herman Melville, and in British and American left wing and working class literature. He is currently working on an article about the political and cultural implications of the fiction reprinted in the Voice of Industry, a labor reform newspaper published in Massachusetts between 1845 and 1848. In 2010, his essay on the early American novel was reprinted in the Norton Critical Edition of Susanna Rowson's Charlotte Temple.
