Ty Hawkins (Ph.D., Saint Louis University) is Chair and Associate Professor of English at UCA, having joined the department during the summer of 2019. Hawkins’s research and teaching interests cut across many periods and movements in American literature and culture, although primarily he works with texts of the 20th and 21st centuries. More specifically, his research and teaching engage how literary form, cultural rhetorics, national identity, gender, and justice intersect. His current major project is a monograph co-authored with Andrew Kim of Marquette University’s Department of Theology; the book is called, Just War Theory Today: An Invitation to Dialogue. Hawkins previously published Cormac McCarthy’s Philosophy (Palgrave 2017) and Reading Vietnam Amid the War on Terror (Palgrave 2012), as well as several journal articles and essays in collections.
