Ordained, Called Lutheran Minister Distinguished Professor Cultural Studies Composition Studies Poetics 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. I have most recently been working with Compassion International to sponsor children living in poverty throughout the world and writing letters to the children sharing the love of Jesus Christ and encouraging them and giving them hope for their future. I would encourage other people to get involved with ministerial organizations such as Compassion which give so much hope and church-based assistance to children living in poverty and who need to know that they are loved and cared for by God, by Jesus and by us.
