Chris Noble is a professor of English and Humanities in Azusa Pacific University’s High Sierra program, where he teaches literature, aesthetics, critical theory, and composition. He has published on a broad variety of topics including gender theory, Christian higher education, and Victorian literature. He believes that universities must be transformational before they can hope to be serviceable. He resides in Oakhurst, California with his wife and two daughters, who make every day feel a bit like a scene from a Jane Austen novel.
