Bernard Rhie

Associate Professor of English

Williams College

Bernard Rhie is Associate Professor of English at Williams College, where he teaches courses on modern literature and on the connections between philosophy and literature. His courses range from traditional genre and single-author surveys to interdisciplinary seminars that investigate a particular topic (like time or the human face) by integrating the study of literature, philosophy, art, and even developmental and cognitive psychology. Courses he has taught at Williams include: Introduction to the Novel, The Ethics of Fiction, Time-Consciousness in Modern Literature and Philosophy, Asian American Literature, Philosophy and Poetry, J.M. Coetzee, and The Human Face in the Modern Imagination. 

Rhie is also the founder of OLP & Literary Studies Online, an academic blog for scholars who work at the crossroads of ordinary language philosophy and literary studies.
