While focusing on the personal essay and ethnographic writing, I've also been examining different approaches to inquiry and expanding my understanding and practice 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.
