Meet Ben

American Studies

As a sixth-grade teacher, Ben Gott was looking for a graduate program to fit his schedule and offer courses that would enhance his educational experience and that of his students. The American Studies Program filled that need.

Dr. Bayers

Ben took a course with Dr. Peter Bayers and submitted a paper on the all-black "singing Westerns" of Herb Jeffries, which was included at the Western Literature Association's 2013 conference, in Berkeley, California.

American Studies Conference

On March 8, Ben was a part of a panel presentation at the American Studies Conference held at Fairfield University. Thanks, in part, to Ben, the conference was a huge success.

ENHANCING HIS OWN EDUCATION AND THAT OF HIS STUDENTS.

Ben Gott, a middle school teacher and dean, chose Fairfield's American Studies graduate program to take his teaching to a whole new level.
