A longtime JASNA Southwest favorite, Lynn Batten won numerous teaching awards throughout his career. Although his research interests focused on British literature from 1660 to 1800, he taught a wide range of courses, including the Bible as Literature and graduate courses in bibliography and literary criticism. He is the author of Pleasurable Instruction: Form and Convention in Eighteenth-Century Travel Literature and he also appeared in two episodes of A&E’s Mysteries of the Bible.
