Ben Fuqua earned his Ph.D. in the British Renaissance from The University of Georgia in 2017. He studies how we understand what it means to be in Renaissance Drama and Lyric—to be a person or thing… or idea—as well as that of their contributing texts. Now having taught University English in some capacity for over 10 years, he specializes in British Literature, Shakespearean and Non-Shakespearean Drama, World Literature, and Composition. His new course in World Lit will concentrate on Magical Thinking globally.
