Curriculum Vitae

rhetoric scholar interested in the power of narratives

As a creative writer, scholar, and educator, I am interested in the power of stories to shape public policy debates. The narrative and literary techniques associated with fiction appear in academic papers, political speeches, and in the news media. Narratives persuade more effectively than expert testimony or raw data.

Scholar-Artist / Artist-Scholar

I find myself alternating between favoring my creative works and favoring scholarship on creative works. The MFA honors my passion to create; the Ph.D. represents a passion to learn and explore theories behind creative choices. Both are terminal degrees and they honor different communities within academia.
