Composition pedagogy, use of student texts and peer review, history of rhetoric


My research interests lie largely within the realm of utopian studies, but specifically how ideas espoused by thinkers such as Ernst Bloch apply practically for my students, most of whom are first year composition students. Beyond this interest, I am also invested in Grimm Brother fairy and folk tales, Renaissance English literature, Chinese language learning, and community building. In all areas of my life I am seeking to learn how to extend grace in meaningful ways, as I believe grace is foundational to community.
