Dr. Matt Spivey has enjoyed teaching English at ACU since 2008.  In teaching nearly every course in the catalog, he has had a wide range of experiences reading great literature and helping students with challenging writing projects.  His personal literary interests are American novels and short fiction of the inter-War period (1920-1945), but he likes most anything.  He also does research and writing that incorporates Austrian economic theory into literary criticism, which gives him a chance to use his nerdiness in two different fields.  He is also the faculty advisor for the ACU English Club and the ACU Writing Center.

Dr. Spivey loves sports and movies, and he enjoys getting into debates about both with his department mates.  He loves playing golf and traveling with his wife of 12 years, Beth, and they live in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Spivey at [email protected] with any questions regarding English at ACU.
