Dr. John D. Morillo

     Associate Professor
Dr. John Morillo has been teaching Eighteenth-Century and Romantic literature at NC State for over fifteen years, and directed Graduate Programs in English from 2002-2005. His research has focused on the relationship between the Neoclassical and Romantic periods, and the history of representations of emotion in literature and criticism during those periods in Britain, and he has published in all of those areas. He enjoys teaching the rise and fall of genres, including the pastoral and georgic, the novel, and the philosophical poem. He has taught all ranks and ages of students in graduate and undergraduate programs. He has been a member of the board of directors for First Year Inquiry Classes for freshmen, and has taught "Q" classes for that program, as well as English Honors courses. His own undergraduate degree is from Reed College, where he majored in English and minored in French, and his MA and PhD are from the University of Chicago. He likes to build things, including fences, porches, and fish ponds. His pets include a fire-bellied newt over twenty years old. In the best of all possible worlds he would spend more time playing tennis, music, fly-fishing, and traveling with his wife, Andrea Atkin, who works in NCSU's First Year College, and with his eleven-year-old son, William, who is much better at math than his father.
