Seth Swanner



Seth Swanner received his Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 2017. His research interests include early modern British politics, conceptions of the environment, and the weird texts produced when those two things smack into each other. Seth has taught a variety of courses, including courses on antihero literature, horror narratives, and structurally dizzying texts. As a first-generation college student, he is interested in curricula that demonstrates how academic skills are compatible with the expertise that students bring from home. Seth himself doubts that he would be as effective a reader without the text-based videogames he played in high school.
Speaking of videogames, Seth still plays. When he is not teaching at the University of Wyoming, he is probably teaching folks how to complete the latest Raid in the videogame Destiny 2. Or maybe he is arguing with his friends about an obscure rule in whatever overly complicated board game he pressured them into playing. Seth’s other hobbies include creative writing, watching silly-but-secretly-intelligent movies (I’m looking at you, John Wick 3), and food. Is food a hobby? It is the way that Seth does it.
