Christopher Keller is the Associate Director of the Honors College at WKU and Head of the Honors Academy. Originally from Houston, Texas, he comes to WKU by way of previous faculty and administrative roles in Connecticut, Hawaii, and Texas. He earned a B.A. in English from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in English from the University of Florida. His research focuses on twentieth and twenty-first century multiethnic literatures and writers in the United States, especially Gloria Anzaldúa and Toni Morrison. He regularly teaches courses in American literature, composition and rhetoric, and technical communication, and when possible, he incorporates service-learning and community-engagement activities into his courses. In particular, he likes developing partnerships with local animal shelters and doing volunteer work with them. Having previously taught honors study abroad courses in Ireland and in Italy, he hopes to do additional study abroad and study away teaching at WKU in the future. Outside of work, he enjoys watching college football, running, hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving, and exploring new cities and natural landscapes. One of his life-long goals is to become a decent tennis player. He has a long way to go on that.
