Danny comes to Emmanuel College from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he recently completed his Ph.D. in English. His dissertation explores representations of university spaces in Jewish American fiction, and he has a great interest in liberal arts education and its role in identity formation. As a teacher, Danny is particularly invested in helping students more richly experience life through the experience of reading literature and watching films. He is, therefore, excited to join Emmanuel’s English department. The college’s mission to integrate faith and learning closely resembles Danny's own values in terms of higher education, which he see as a process of developing the whole person, intellectually, physically, and spiritually.
Danny says he is blessed to be a part of Emmanuel College at this exciting time in its history. The college’s vision for itself and its students is inspiring and he is anxious to take part in that vision.
Danny lives in Royston with his wife, Kim, and their two daughters. They are all enjoying the experience of getting to know Northeast Georgia, and he looks forward to growing into his role in the Emmanuel community in the years to come!
