Personal Page for Dan Pigg


I'm a Professor of English at The University of Tennessee at Martin, where I have been teaching since 1989. I teach a wide range of courses, including first-year composition (theme courses in chivalry and villains), British literature surveys, Chaucer, Early English Literature, History of the English Language, Shakespeare, and Restoration and Eighteenth-Century English Literature. I regularly teach Secondary English Methods for the UT Martin College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. I often also teach as an adjunct instructor for Fundamentals of Curriculum or Models of Instruction for the Department of Instruction and Curriculum Leadership at The University of Memphis. I hold a PhD in English (UT Knoxville, 1989) and an EdD in Curriculum Theory (University of Memphis, 2003). My areas of research interest include medieval literature, particularly Chaucer and Langland, curriculum studies, and masculinity studies in both medieval and modern contexts. My vita lists publication and conference presentation information. During the 2004-2005 academic year, I am serving as the UT Martin Faculty Senate President. I'm still looking for spare time!
