Director of Stanford’s Program in Writing and Rhetoric – Search

It gives me great pleasure to share the following job call for a new Director of PWR with a joint appointment in the Stanford Graduate School of Education. Affiliated with PWR since 2005, I am now the lone representative from PWR on the committee (as a non-tenure-track lecturer, to boot), and so I’m happy to answer any questions about the Program and/or the projected relationship we hope to cultivate with the GSE. Feel free to share with interested colleagues by the deadline, December 15.

Thanks, Wes

I want to give a huge THANKS to my pal Wes for helping me to migrate my old Drupal site to this new home, and for also hosting my sites for the past 4+ years.

Wes and I spent our formative years together in Riverview, MI, mainly while floating down the Detroit River between 5-7am each morning. As members of a men’s crew, we not only traveled the country together, we also both regularly weighed in shy of 140lbs. He indulged my nascent love of Morrissey, and I his history in scouting and Mormonism.

Wes still lives in metro Detroit, and we remain close friends despite the distance and time.
