James M. Hutchisson


Born in Washington, D.C., Jim Hutchisson received his Ph.D. from the University of Delaware in 1987. He was on the faculty of Washington and Jefferson College for two years before coming to The Citadel faculty in 1989.

Dr. Hutchisson has written widely on American and southern literatures with 10 books and more than 60 articles of literary and historical criticism and nonfiction to his credit. His most recent book, Ernest Hemingway:  A New Life was hailed by The Washington Post as a "deftly-written...gentler but sadder look at an American master."  The National Review asserted, "Hutchisson has done the impossible: He has made an original conribution to the literature about the most written-about author in American letters."    

Hutchisson has served as an officer and outside reviewer for numerous scholarly organizations, universities, and publishers, including past chair of the American literature section of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association.

As an expert on the history and culture of Charleston, he has been interviewed by the BBC, ETV, and the Voice of America and has been featured in articles in newspapers and magazines ranging from the Boston Globe to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
