Originally from Texas, the Navy sent Scott Satterwhite to Pensacola in 1995, and he never left. After working professionally as a writer for several years, Satterwhite graduated from UWF with a BA in History with a specialization in gender and diversity. He holds an MA in English/Literature from UWF and is completing an MA in American History. He recently earned "Master's Thesis of the Year" in 2012 for his article "I go to make Freemen of Slaves'": Romantic Abolitionist Poetry and the Creation of Negro Fort." Satterwhite presented this work for the National Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR) conference in Neuchatel, Switzerland; the International Conference on Romanticism (ICR) in Tempe, Arizona; and most recently for the Robert Southey and Romanticism conference at the University of Nottingham, UK. Besides teaching various history and humanities classes, Satterwhite primarily teaches English Composition for the Department of English and World Languages. His research interests include (but are not limited to) rhetoric in alternative literature, alternative literary forms in public writing, rhetoric of Romantic abolitionism, literature of the Beat Generation and Harlem Renaissance, and the literature of Punk.
