Simon Pennington M.A. taught at Foothill College from 1995 to 2016. Simon earned
his M.A. (1992) from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England with an emphasis
in Romanesque architecture. Simon's dissertation examined the ruined 12th-century
church at Oxford, England, proposed a form for the building, and placed it within
the context of vigorous economic and political maneuvering by King Henry II and his
attempt to dampen the influence of both the papacy and his barons.
