Professor of English, Director of Writing Center at Hillsdale College

Justin A. Jackson has taught at Hillsdale College since 2004, where he regularly teaches course on the Great Books, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval Literature, Chaucer, Old English, Dostoevsky, and Philosophy and Literature. His publications mirror his wide teaching interests. He’s published essays on the Old English Genesis B, Julian of Norwich, the Pearl-Poet, Ben Jonson, Emmanuel Levinas, René Girard, Dostoevsky, the poetry of Scott Cairns, and on The Revelation to Saint John and apocalyptic hermeneutics. With Ann W. Astell, he co-edited Levinas and Medieval Literature: The “Difficult Reading” of English and Rabbinic Texts (Duquesne University Press, 2009). You will find him on the basketball court often, either playing or coaching, but no doubt pleading with his children to roll to the basket after they’ve set the pick.
