Shawn Miller joined the Francis Marion University faculty in 2008; before that, he taught writing and literature in the University of Wisconsin system. He specializes in modern and contemporary American literature, with a particular emphasis in the literature of the American South, and he is especially interested in how Southern literature has been and continues to be defined. He has written and spoken on a range of Southern writers, including William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston, Cormac McCarthy, and Natasha Trethewey. He is currently working on two projects, one on Missouri novelist Daniel Woodrell and another on Edgar Allan Poe’s only novel.
