"My specialized area of research is focused on modern and contemporary American art, specifically contextual and theoretical issues associated with the Abstract Expressionist, Neo-Dada and Pop Art movements. I am particularly interested in studying the intersection of these artistic tendencies with forms of mass visual culture, as well as their relation to trends in American philosophical thought."

"As a performer, I continue to experiment with new approaches to jazz improvisation. As a musicologist I continue to focus my research on the relationships between jazz and the political and social climates surrounding different periods in jazz history. As a director, I emphasize a broad knowledge of both classic jazz repertoire and new innovations in jazz composition."

"For a number of years my energies have been engaged with Twentieth Century American, British, and World Literature-including poetry, fiction, and drama-but more recently, I have been drawn to the multidisciplinary dynamics of creativity as an aspect of both cultural and natural environments. A term that best describes this focus, perhaps, is 'bio-formalism,' with its suggestion that cultural artifacts, such as paintings, plays, and poems or choreography and compositions, are significantly shaped by, derived from, and dependent upon our individual biographies, our personal and commonly shared biology, and our place as creatures of consciousness within the larger and evolving biotic system. As a practical matter, this means that young writers in my classes are continually encouraged to explore the artistic and natural world around them as a way of discovering and articulating the intricacies of selfhood."

"Along with directing the dance program at Knox College, I have an active professional career as the Artistic Director of "Back & to the Left Productions", a modern dance based performance company. Through my work with Back & to the Left Productions, I have produced work in Dance Chicago, The Minnesota Fringe Festival, The International Festival for Dance Artists in Toronto, Canada, as well as in Avignon, France. Currently, there are several Knox College dance students, as well as a few alumni, that are performing members of my company."

After careers in commercial lending and distribution, John Spittell came to Knox shortly after the sale of his business interests, a regional beverage distributorship, United Distributors, Inc. where he was a co-owner.

During his career, Spittell found success as a commercial lender, but soon saw the challenge and excitement of running his own businesses. As an owner/manager, Spittell believes it's important to take a "holistic approach to management," by learning all he can about customers, key operations, and enabling employees to succeed. This managerial skill has served him well. Over his career he has successfully navigated several mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and partner buyouts.

"My current study applies statistical analyses in two distinct areas of study. My new interest is modeling oxygen uptake and maximal effort of cardiac patients participating in rehabilitation programs prescribed to restore as much cardiovascular function as possible. It is interesting, fun and useful to apply statistical methods in academic disciplines spanning anthropology, biology, economics, political science and psychology. That is why I helped to develop the general education Stat 200 course. Lately I have developed a course called the Economics of Nonprofit Enterprises and a course on the history of financial panics in the United States."
