Dr. Bryce Christensen

Bryce Christensen, who teaches writing and world literature at Southern Utah University, received his Ph. D. in English literature from Marquette University. His current research interests include the ethics of science, utopian literature, and the politics of the family. He focuses especially on the problem of preserving human values in a world increasingly de-mystified and de-sacralized by science. Also central to his critical investigations is the difficulty of establishing a community of trust in a culture increasingly skeptical of any and all truth claims. Dr. Christensen has published poetry and critical articles in a number of scholarly journals. His novel "Winner!" (forthcoming from Whiskey Creek Press) examines the psychological consequences of the failure of the Promethean project of modern science.
