Biography:

Chris Field is originally from Dayton, Ohio, but he comes to UNR by way of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where he studied for his PhD. He has taught a variety of literature and composition classes examining themes as diverse as traumatic representations in literature, rhetoric in sports, and American popular culture. When he is not hard at work researching or teaching, he enjoys watching the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cincinnati Reds, and he considers himself a “huge comic book nerd.”
