“I did try to found a little heresy of my own, and when I had put the last touches on it, I discovered it was orthodoxy.” – G.K. Chesterton

A native son of the South, Dr. Killian earned his Ph.D. in Humanities from the University of Louisville. He currently writes and researches in the area of philosophy of theatre, with a particular interest in the playwright Eugene O’Neill and how his plays intersect with contemporary theory of emotion.
