Rhetorical theory and its relevance to composition theory and practice
Narrative theory, particularly in relation to creative nonfiction and fiction
British Romantics and Modernist fiction
My present research and writing investigates the nature of aesthetic cognition, focusing on linguistic theory and literary philosophy. My work is hybrid and paratactical. I am interested in how we can understand what happens as we choose and arrange words, and how such an understanding can reveal the isomorphic structures that link poetry and fiction and nonfiction narratives.
