Dr. Robert Williams


Robert Williams is Chair of both the Department of English and the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Radford University, and holds a BA in English from the College of William and Mary, in Virginia, an MA and PhD in Education (Reading Specialist for the MA, Curriculum and Instruction for the PhD) from Virginia Tech, and an MS in English from Radford.  He teaches a variety of classes in literature, linguistics, interdisciplinary liberal arts, and elementary and secondary language arts teaching methods, and has taught welding and machine shop and high school English during the current and previous centuries, but has focused almost exclusively on liberal arts and education-related topics in the current century.  If he had free time, he’d read for fun (science fiction and fantasy, mostly), travel, fish, roller skate with the kids, ride his motorcycle or mountain bike, drag race, target shoot, or work on one of his welding or hot rod projects in the shop or remodeling projects around the house.
