Andrew Hazucha is Professor of English and chair of the Arts and Humanities division at Ottawa University. A scholar of eighteenth-century British literature, he also regularly teaches interdisciplinary team-taught courses on Irish and Scottish literature, and he has taken groups of Ottawa students to Ireland and Scotland’s Orkney Islands on eight separate occasions. He has written over a dozen articles on topics as various as William Wordsworth, Nelson Algren, Conor McPherson, the 1977 Chicago L-train crash, and the poetry of former Kansas City Royals pitcher Dan Quisenberry. His essay entitled “The Subplot as A-Plot: The Function of Baseball in Yoko Ogawa’s The Housekeeper and the Professor” is due to appear in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Aethlon.
Hazucha organizes the annual Baseball in Literature and Culture conference hosted by Ottawa University and is the co-editor, with Gerald C. Wood, of the volume Northsiders: Essays on the History and Culture of the Chicago Cubs (McFarland Press, 2008).
