While focusing some classes on community engagement, in a partnership with the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, I've also been examining different approaches to inquiry, especially the ethnographic. I've also been expanding my understanding of composition to include audio, video, and photographic elements, along with alphabetic text.
Even after all these years, I fear I still look like a worried accountant most of the time, but I relax a little bit in front of a class, and I thrive on the writing risks taken by my students. Can't get enough of those sensory details, those alternative endings, those crystalline insights.
