Christopher Fitter
Professor
Chris Fitter received his D.Phil. from St. John’s College, Oxford in 1989, and has given guest seminars at Columbia, Oxford and Yale. His first book, Poetry, Space, Landscape: Toward a New Theory (Cambridge: 1995) discussed representations of the natural world from Homer to Milton in literature, art, and formal thought, and suggested some foundational sociological principles behind the conceptualization of nature as landscape. Radical Shakespeare: Politics and Stagecraft in the Early Career (Routledge: 2012) placed Shakespeare’s early plays within contexts of political opposition and debate normally overlooked in the field, arguing for the playwright’s alignment with popular sufferings and populist politics. Following this he edited the pioneering volume Shakespeare and the Politics of Commoners: Digesting the New Social History (Oxford, 2017), which introduces to Shakespeare studies the political culture, often skeptical and combative, of the mass of ordinary commoners in contemporary England. His current book, nearly complete, is Activist Shakespeare: Politics and Stagecraft in the Second Tetralogy and King Lear, which examines these dramas as further examples of Shakespeare’s risk-taking involvement in hot political topics of those years. He has published nearly twenty essays and book chapters, along with many reviews.

William FitzGerald
Associate Professor
Bill FitzGerald specializes in rhetoric and writing studies with particular interests in the rhetoric or religion, Kenneth Burke and the rhetoric of style.

Finally, Bill directs the Teaching Matters and Assessment Center in the College of Arts and Sciences.
