info:
I am an Assistant Professor of Film and Media Studies, where I have taught courses on video games, film genres, Korean cinema, and other film topics. I will be teaching a new course called Digital Media and Culture in the fall as part of this program. I’m designing the course as an overview of the ways that computers have changed culture, and we’ll be looking at all sorts of digital technologies and platforms from Google to Wikipedia to digital visual effects and video games. I’m hoping to use the Domain project as an online hub for my students to collect their various online efforts. They will be doing creative projects using Facebook, Twitter, and blogging, among other things. Check out my domain of my very own.

I've asked most of my students to publish most of their work since 1997. The biggest change this has meant is that it's pushed me to ask students to make the texts they circulate beyond the classroom meaningful. Typically this means making some sort of original contribution--either a tactical media intervention in public discourse, or primary contribution, however modest, to the evidence an academic or professional community might consider in connection with an unasked or unanswered question.

info:
I am a PhD student in the Graduate Division of Religion. Before pursuing a theological education, I earned a B.A. in English literature from the University of Miami (FL), and a J.D. from the William and Mary School of Law. I spent eight years as an Assistant Attorney General for Virginia before earning my M.Div. and Th.M. from Candler School of Theology. My work at Candler focused on the Christian doctrine of the incarnation and understandings of atonement and sacrifice. My research interests include a broader understanding of what is essential in the incarnation, and the implications this definition has for other doctrines, including creation, theological anthropology, and soteriology.

I'm a fourth-year PhD student in the department of English. I work on medieval and early modern English poetry and drama, and my most recent research interests include homosocial relationships in medieval and early modern lyric poetry, the use of form and lyric in non-lyric genres, and the seventeenth-century epithalamium. I am also interested in translation and periodization, and I find a great deal of joy in composition and the teaching of writing--which I suppose is why I'm an Emory Writing Program Fellow.

I am a Ph.D. student in Hebrew Bible. My research focuses on four major questions: 1) How did the ancient Israelites and their neighbors relate to nature, natural phenomena, and non-human beings? 2) How are different relationships between humans and nature expressed in ancient Near Eastern texts—including but not limited to the Bible? 3) Which new insights can a reading of the biblical text from the perspective of nature offer? And, 4) how do we understand the Bible as authoritative scripture in times of environmental threats—e.g. what can the biblical text contribute to the debate over environmental ethics or sustainability

Before Emory, I taught creative writing and expository writing at Cornell, where I received my poetry MFA in 2009. My work now is on performativity and the genealogy of expressive culture, focusing on southern Louisiana but also on anything connected by a fiber optic cable. I am into experimental scholarship, parataxis, and public enunciation. Hence, I like to use the internet and computers as both a medium for my own cultural and aesthetic interventions and as an arena where different pedagogies might emerge.

I am the Program Coordinator for the Emory Writing Program, where I am the project manager for Domain of One's Own amongst my various duties. At Emory, I have taught courses in first year composition and the sophomore poetry class. Before coming to Emory, I was a Brittain Fellow at Georgia Tech and I also taught at University of West Georgia and at Longwood University in Virginia. I did my graduate work in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, but I left before finishing my dissertation (which was on child raising and the frontier in turn-of-the-century America and ecocriticism).

I'm a single father of two fantastic daughters, who are growing up so fast that I just can't believe it. I've been blogging and publishing to the web in one form or another since 2000. I'm a semi-professional photographer and painter and an actor in local community theater. I also play lead and rhythm guitar in a (sorta cheesy) cover band named Occasionally Alice. I've been puttering about on a memoir for the last couple of years, though progress has been slow. I'm also considering resurrecting my dissertation, but on computers and composition.

Using a Grounded Theory approach, her research team is analyzing over 150 portfolios, identifying major student self-reported themes of content learning, epistemological shifts, growth in analytical skills, and personal and spiritual change. Through the Office of Sustainability Initiatives, she developed the Emory as Place Initiative, designed to explore and educate about campus histories, places, and ecologies using media-based, experiential, and narrative-based formats.
