Dr. Fehskens joined the ETSU faculty in fall 2011, where he has  been active as a publisher and researcher, working primarily in deep readings of Hispanic Modernism in a transatlantic, denationalized context. This interest has taken him to studies of French philosopher Henri Bergson, and most recently to the Jesuit roots of aspects of Literary Modernism in Spanish. He is Director of the Study Abroad program to Spain, and recently has returned after traveling the Iberian Peninsula with twelve amazing students. For the past three years, his curiosity has taken him to study the Arabic language and the pervasive presence of Arabic language and culture in Spain; he was able to apply this knowledge most recently when teaching the history of Al Andalus in Toledo.
