Phillip Fox 2016Dr. Phillip D. Fox is an assistant professor of history at Wayne State College. He is also co-advisor for Phi Alpha Theta, the history honorary. Prior to coming to Wayne State College, he taught as an assistant professor at Simpson University in Redding, Calif.

He has broad training in European and world history with a research focus on early modern Spain. He has received numerous awards and honors for both his teaching and research including a Fulbright Research Grant for archival work in Spain during 2010-2011.

In his courses, Dr. Fox encourages students to cultivate their ability to do history, an action he believes is neither natural nor obvious, but that is nevertheless beneficial to its practitioners. Developing these skills prepares students for further advanced study in a variety of liberal and professional fields, in addition to enhancing their ability to engage the world outside the academy.

Dr. Fox is a member of the American Historical Association and the Association for Spanish and Protuguese Historical Studies, and regularly presents his research at conferences around the country.
