Timothy Wientzen

Associate Professor, Skidmore College

Class Year


Professional Background

After six years at Duke, I spent three years teaching in the History and Literature program at Harvard. In 2015 I joined the faculty at Skidmore College.

How has your PhD at Duke shaped your work life?

This is too hard of a question. In many ways my work in the classroom is a continuation of the coursework I did at Duke. I remain now, as I was then--closely reading texts and relentlessly thinking about their meanings. As a scholar, I have largely continued in the areas of inquiry that informed my dissertation, and I recently published a book that branched from the research I did at Duke.
