Department of English

Welcome to Ted Hovet's Webpage



       I received my Ph.D from Duke University in English with an emphasis on American Literature and Film Studies.  I came to WKU in 1995 and am now an Associate Professor of English and director of the Film Studies minor.  I teach composition, American studies, film history, and film theory.  I especially enjoy opportunities to team-teach and to teach in interdisciplinary settings. 

On the scholarly side of things, I do research in early cinema, historical fiction, and pedagogy.  I am also the co-managing editor of rWp: An Annual of Robert Penn Warren Studies

I have been co-advisor of the WKU English Club since 1997.  In 2002, I founded the WKU Undergraduate Literature Conference, an annual event that features original critical essays on literature written by WKU students.
