My New Academic Position

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve been posting sporadically since the start of the school year. Well, the secret is out: I was on the academic and non-academic job markets–a tall order!

I’m happy to announce that, in January, I accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of English at Francis Marion University, which I’ll begin in August 2012. I’ll be teaching a variety of courses, including first-year composition and professional writing.

Speaking of milestones: In early May, I’m defending my dissertation, Making Medicine in America: A Literary Account, 1870-1950. Although I’m very busy working towards that goal (the entire dissertation must be submitted in the committee in early April), I’m still going to post here on The Ambulant Scholar. After all, I’ve got resolutions to uphold! I also post at least twice a month at GradHacker, a blog now affiliated with Inside Higher Ed, so be sure to check out my work there, too.

Curious about this palmetto tree?

I'm an "ambulant scholar," and I move among several worlds. As a professor of English, I research and write for audiences within and outside of academia. As a teacher of writing, literature, and culture, I facilitate learning. As a blogger, I critique, question, and reflect.
