Research

research overview

  • Dr. Ellis researches and teaches creative nonfiction and editorial and publishing skills, creativity and revision in rhetoric and writing, literary criticism, creative nonfiction and fiction, and improvisational musical performance. Research in American fiction centers on spatial constraint and gender in putatively masculinist narratives. Research in compositional pedagogy examines cloud storage replacements of course management systems to expand 'social computing' models of learning in physical classrooms. Alternative pedagogy and praxis teaches specific computer techniques for research, writing, and revision enabling students to become life-long practitioners of critical inquiry through their own research, composition, and editing.
