Scott Dill teaches and writes about how contemporary cultural forms portray the experience of belief. In the classroom, this translates into challenging students to think through the cultural histories that shape our everyday assumptions about meaning and significance. His writing on these topics has appeared in boundary 2, Books & Culture, Critique, Christianity and Literature, as well as other collections. He received a BA from Wheaton College in Philosophy and English, as well as an MA and PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in English and Comparative Literature. Right now he is working on a book about the relationship between literary style and moral emotions.
