    Biography

    David Hudson is a professor of English and International Journalism. He teaches a variety of courses that straddle his two main interests, media writing and First World War Studies. Hudson began his career in the Political Unit of ABC News in New York, and later, after joining the Hamline University faculty, he was director of the Voter News Service Minnesota office. Recently he has served on the steering committee of the Aftermaths Network, an interdisciplinary group of international scholars researching the role of women activists and women’s organizations in the years following the First World War. His most recent publications have examined the work of Eleanor Franklin Egan, an American journalist who traveled the world writing for the Saturday Evening Post in the early 20th century. Hudson received his PhD from the University of Minnesota. He began teaching at Hamline in 1989. He has also taught courses at the University of Trier in Germany and the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China.

    Teaching Style

    Students in Professor Hudson’s classes are empowered to take control of their learning, whether publishing outside the classroom in a journalism course, or doing archival work in a women’s literature class. 

    “I want students to share the excitement that professional researchers have when they discover or create something new. I will provide the tools and the methods, and then work with them to help them go where they want to go.”
