I first began writing a blog in 2009 while I was writing my dissertation. I started it in order to do some non-academic writing about my family, what I was reading, and live music.
Now, I’m in my 15th year of teaching and first year in a tenure track position in the English, Technical Communication, and Media Arts Department at Southern Polytechnic State University. I’m picking up and moving my thoughts again, to this blog.
Update: I’ve since moved on from the second and third spaces mentioned above and aggregated the content from both on this self-hosted space.
I look forward to using this space to reflect on critical and digital pedagogy, new media literacy, networked knowledge, professional learning networks, contingency in higher education, faculty development, alternatives to academic publishing, and the intersection of literature, rhetoric, and digital humanities. And to connecting and collaborating with all of you, my far-flung, brilliant colleagues.
A couple of days ago, I had a fun exchange on Twitter that’s relevant to this new stage of my academic work. Thanks for the great question, Whitney.
