Profile:

Raymond A. Mazurek, associate professor of English, received his Ph.D. in American Studies from Purdue University in 1980. Since coming to Penn State Berks in 1983, he has taught a great variety of courses in writing, literature, and American Studies. Although most of his published work is on twentieth century fiction, his more recent interests are in working-class studies.
