Hi! My name is Joe Harris. I’ve been teaching academic writing since 1982. I’m currently an associate professor of English at Duke University. If you’d like to learn more about me, please click on my website on the BlogRoll.
Over the past few years, I’ve grown convinced that to teach writing well, we now need to think about what it means to write online. And to do that, I thought that I needed to learn more about what it feels like to write online. So I decided to start this blog. My posts will report on what I am doing as a teacher of academic writing—reading, writing, thinking, working with students. So I imagine that this blog will be a collection of response to books and articles I’ve read, reflections on courses I’m designing and classes I’ve taught, and speculations about what I might do or might have done.
