DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF CULTURAL STUDIES, POETICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES AND MINISTER OF GOD'S LOVE AND STRONG ADVOCATE OF WOMEN'S RIGHTS
Interests: I am a Distinguished Professor of Cultural Studies, Composition Studies and Poetics, and a Lutheran Minister of the Love and Amazing Grace of Jesus and a Strong Advocate of Women's Rights, residing in the Greater Des Moines Metropolitan region of the United States. My interests range from the teaching of writing at the university level to pedagogical reform issues and have taught at three major, well-known universities in the United States in the fields of composition studies, cultural studies and poetics in the United States, including Georgia Tech, State University of New York at Albany and University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I am interested in the arts, feminist theory, cultural theory, poetics, web development, and technology. I have been creating and writing blogs for the past fourteen years, since 2004, about the teaching of writing, which I have done for over two decades, and about my Christian/Lutheran faith and God and Jesus, ministering to others through those websites. I have a passion for social justice issues and making the world a more compassionate, loving and just place, especially for those people and children in the world who suffer without the many blessings that we have here in the USA.
