Instructor: SCOTT BLACK


Scott Black joined the U's English Department in 2005. He teaches courses on contemporary global literature, the long history of the novel, and speculative fiction. Originally from the east coast, he now loves hiking in the west and running in the local canyons.

"This class was excellent. It was a serious academic experience with substantive reading and content. The professor was extremely knowledgeable and passed along a lot of useful context and background. I feel that my knowledge of the Japanese short story has expanded dramatically. Thank you!"-Jorge C.
