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 courses on Irish literature and history, and he has taken groups of American students to Ireland for study-abroad opportunities on ten separate occasions.  He has written over a dozen articles on topics as various as William Wordsworth, Nelson Algren, Jackie Robinson, the 1977 Chicago L-train crash, and the poetry of former Kansas City Royals pitcher Dan Quisenberry.  His essay “The Shannon Scheme, Rural Electrification, and Veiled History in Conor McPherson’s The Weir” appeared in the summer 2013 issue of New Hibernia Review.  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).
