Cameron L. Winter was raised in a textile-town-turned-suburb of the North Carolina piedmont. He graduated from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Language in 2010. After a short break from academia, he returned to North Carolina State University where he received his Master of Arts in American and British Literature in 2016. His thesis focused upon Flannery O'Connor and examined the ways in which her humanist characters embody satirically the materialist optimism of space-age humanism of the 1960s. He has spoken at several conferences regarding his studies of Flannery O'Connor, popular culture, and 19th-century American and Southern literature. At the University of Georgia, he teaches First-Year Composition while working towards his Ph.D. that will focus on the literature of the American South and has general interests in American literature, postcolonialism, globalization, and gender, race, and disability literary theory.
