Biography

Greg Winston joined the Husson faculty in August 2001 after earning his Ph.D. in English from the University of Delaware (2001) and his B.A. from Colgate University (1993). He teaches a range of English and humanities courses, from the general education sequence in writing, rhetoric, and literature to upper-level electives including World Literature, Environmental Writing, Literature and Medicine, and Irish Studies.  His scholarship takes historical and environmental approaches to Irish and British modernist writers.  He is author of the book Joyce and Militarism, a study of James Joyce's writing in the context of Irish political history and European martial culture (published by University Press of Florida 2012, paperback 2015).  

Other select recent publications include articles on Joseph Conrad (in Critical Approaches to Joseph Conrad, University of South Carolina Press, 2015) and Joyce (in James Joyce Quarterly and EcoJoyce, Cork University Press, 2014).  Professor Winston serves as Faculty Athletics Representative (FAR), an NCAA position whose purpose is to foster an appropriate academic-athletic balance on campus and to ensure the well-being of student-athletes. He has previously worked as a journalist covering capital markets in New York City and newspaper reporter in rural Alaska. Beyond campus, his interests include whitewater kayaking, backcountry skiing and renovating classic Maine homes.

Professional Statement

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.
