Today! Responding to student writing.
I study and teach writing transfer, networks, and programs using mixed empirical methods. I'm starting my fourth year at Purdue University after eleven years at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois.
I have two central research projects. First, a collaborative longitudinal study of writing transfer, with sixteen student and fourteen faculty participants from a regional state comprehensive university. My collaborator Neil Baird and I are writing up our findings as a series of articles:
I'm also developing Crow, the Corpus & Repository of Writing, with Shelley Staples, Bill Hart-Davidson, and a team of graduate and undergraduate students from Purdue, Arizona State, and Michigan State University. I'm glad to say we were awarded a $142,000 grant from Humanities Without Walls to support this project. See our recent blog posts for more information.
I also have more recent work in the collection Florida (Jeff Rice, ed, Parlor 2015) and the forthcoming collection Networked Humanities (Brian McNely, ed, Parlor 2017).
