Bio

Steve Michael completed his Ph.D. at Texas Tech University in 1995 and came to Wayland in the same year. His teaching emphases include Early Modern British Literature and research writing. His research interests include British criminal and sensation fiction of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; the theorization of virtue, morality, and ethics in eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century British fiction; implications of the relationship between language and money in literature; and a re-evaluation of the use of stylistic models in freshman composition. His non-academic interests include reading pulp fantasy, watching old Westerns, and building gaming PCs.
