Penn State Fayette welcomes William Rogers to English faculty

9/11/2007 —
UNIONTOWN, PA – William J. Rogers has joined the English faculty at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. Rogers will teach “Rhetoric in Composition” and “Reading Poetry,” and he hopes to offer a course on Shakespeare in the spring 2008 semester.  
Rogers is currently completing his dissertation and will soon receive his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he lived and taught before joining Penn State Fayette.

 Rogers has written articles and given lectures on Shakespeare, Erasmus, St. Thomas More, Ben Jonson, Queen Elizabeth I, and other Renaissance individuals.  He is a member of the Shakespeare Association of America.

Rogers is also interested in community engagement and outreach. While in graduate school Rogers developed and ran a writing program that brought university and high school athletes together to discuss the possible relationships between academic and athletic forms of practice. He hopes to develop similar types of programs at Penn State Fayette.

Rogers is a Boston native and received a bachelor of arts degree in English and philosophy from Boston College. William resides in Uniontown with his wife Amanda.
