Professor Stutz’s teaching and research interests focus primarily on nineteenth-century British literature and culture and the history of western aesthetics. He is the author of Evangelicals and Aesthetics from the 1750s to the 1930s (Paternoster Press, Studies in Evangelical History and Thought Series, 2016), as well as articles and review essays on C.S. Lewis, the Bible in Victorian England, failure, and boredom in the classroom. His other areas of interest include adventure fiction, spiritual autobiography, the history of evangelicalism, and the history of ideas. He is currently at work on a project examining the life and works of the nineteenth-century evangelical Scottish adventure novelist R.M. Ballantyne.
