I teach business writing, and earlier this week, I led a workshop for students in FMU's Career Connections program. 

In the workshop, program participants learned about monitoring and developing a professional web presence to aid in the job search. To benefit Career Connections participants and others, I’m publishing my lecture slides and handouts (including an activity guide) on my blog.

At the PCAS/ACAS annual conference, I presented a paper entitled, “Baby Dust: The Digital Spaces and Identities of Women TTC (Trying to Conceive).” For reasons I outline in a recent blog post, I’m making my paper available on my website through Scribd. In the post, I also explain how this paper marks the first step in a new direction for me in the health humanities.

A geographically-oriented personal essay about the landscapes of my life and what they have in common.

Excerpt: "I was back at the fall line. This is the place where the coastal plain rises and plateaus into a geological formation called the Piedmont. Put plainly, the fall line is the point at which the flat and featureless earth ascends and begins to define itself."
