She has many extracurricular interests that include kayaking, photography, classical guitar, and nature study.
Greg Winston came to Husson in 2001 after earning a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. He teaches a broad range of courses, from first-year writing and literature to upper-level seminars on creative writing, literature and medicine, world cinema and Irish studies. His research interest and publications focus on modern Irish and British literatures, especially their intersections with history and geography. He is currently working on a book about James Joyce and militarism.
Since 2001, he has served as editor of Crosscut, the Husson literary magazine. He is also faculty advisor to the English Club and the Husson Outdoors Club. During breaks from teaching and writing, he can often be found kayaking Maine's whitewater or skiing the Snowfields at Sugarloaf.
My goal in every course is for students to tap into their own abilities and unlock the power and joy that accompany the study of literature and writing. I want that awareness to stay with them beyond the course and long after college. In that sense, I've always seen English courses as not only preparing people for careers but also equipping them for life.
