Marcus A. Hudson is a professor of English at Wabash College. He has been a professor of English at Wabash since 1987. Before that he taught at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and before that at the University of Washington in Seattle during his graduate school years. "There are few pleasures greater than watching young minds grapple with ideas, dig into them, and grow." Marcus has also worked as a staff writer and editor for an archaeology project on the Columbia Plateau and as an editor for an urban planner. Before his academic career, he was a free-lance writer and published articles in Audubon,Pacific Northwest magazine, Stepping Out Northwest, Environmental Action, and Iceland Review. He is co-director of the Environmental Concerns Committee at Wabash and a board member of Friends of Sugar Creek, a local environmental group. He likes to get out into the woods and be silent for awhile, just watching and listening. Or listen to music-the Decemberists and Regina Spektor are favorite performers. Or hang out with friends or continue a long, ongoing conversation with his wife over a good dinner and a glass of wine.
