Publications

The following is a list of my publications, in case you are interested in reading some of my more formally published work. All of these items were produced as part of my Day Job as a faculty member at UAlbany. Some of it is freely available online but the stuff that isn’t can be requested through your local library (or, you know, purchased elsewhere if you’re into that sort of thing).

Works in progress

Teaching the contextual nature of research (working title)

  • A book project for the American Library Association which will explore some of the concepts from “Research is an Activity and a Subject of Study” in more depth. 

The role of research in creative writing and implications for libraries and information literacy instruction (working title)

  • A scholarly article exploring the role of research in creative writing as represented in the content of writers’ self-reports (academic writing books, popular how-to books, author interviews, etc.) to be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal in the library and information science field.

Writing what you don’t know: Bringing conversations about research into the creative writing classroom (working title)

  • A scholarly article exploring the role of research in creative writing and the implications of this for creative writing instruction to be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal in the writing studies field.
