Current Research Projects
My current book project, Situating Writing Processes (forthcoming in 2019 with University Press of Colorado/The WAC Clearinghouse) asks how a renewed sense of writing processes might differently inflect contemporary writing pedagogies. Expanding contemporary process teaching away from strategy and toward responsivity, difference, and improvisation, my book aims to help writing teachers capaciously reimagine a critical pedagogical concept and position student-writers to locate composing within dynamic and unforeseen contexts.
