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, violence, gender, and justice intersect. His current major project is a monograph co-authored with Andrew Kim, an ethicist who directs Marquette University’s Center for the Advancement of the Humanities. Due out in late 2021, the book is called, Just War Theory and Literary Studies: An Invitation to Dialogue. Hawkins and Kim also are co-editing a special issue of LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory on “Reading Contemporary American Warfare with Just War Theory.” Hawkins previously published Cormac McCarthy’s Philosophy and Reading Vietnam Amid the War on Terror, as well as a number of juried articles and essays in collections.
