Glenn S. Gordinier
2003 - Present
As an American historian focused on the maritime, teaching at Avery Point has been a perfect fit for Glenn Gordinier. After all, his subject matter is all there, right outside the classroom window. He also teaches for the Williams College-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies Program. Dr. Gordinier’s books have dealt with commercial fishing, gender, race, the War of 1812, and his favorite activity, surfing. His current book project explores the inspiration that creates life-long surfers and the epiphany that creates surfer-activists for the environment or social change
