Jonathan Daigle is an associate professor of English. He teaches Introduction to Composition, Introduction to Literary Analysis, Literature of Non-Western Cultures, and Survey of African American Literature.
"Small classes, great colleagues, and an excellent network of student resources make Hillyer College a great place to teach and learn," says Daigle. "Students know to seek out their professors outside of class, and I enjoy this personalized teaching. I especially enjoy learning from students, who often look at texts and issues from perspectives that are new to me."
Daigle's research interests include:
- Nineteenth-century US literature
- African American literature and culture
- Literature and science
- American studies
