Prof. Daniel Spiotta

Adjunct, Online

Daniel Spiotta is an Adjunct Professor for Holy Apostles College and Seminary, and a doctoral candidate in Literature at the University of Dallas, where he has taught courses in the Trivium, epic and lyric poetry, and Drama, both comedy and tragedy. He has also served UD as the director of its Writing Lab.

His dissertation focuses upon Shakespeare’s response to the spread of philosophical and religious skepticism in England. This focus finds a place in Prof. Spiotta’s broader interest in the role which literature and rhetoric play in shaping souls for self-government, and in opening the eyes of the heart to the deeper realities at play in the world, through and beneath its appearances. He is convinced of the indispensable importance for the well-trained intellect of a serious and studious grounding in the philosophical and literary heritage of the West.

Prof. Spiotta has presented papers on a wide range of authors within this heritage. He has taken a Master of Arts in Literature from the University of Dallas, and a Bachelors in English and Latin from Hillsdale College.
