I am an associate professor in English and Director of Writing Across the Curriculum in The Institute for Writing Studies at St. John's University. My interest in Wikipedia was sparked in a faculty development program at St. John's University funded by T3, a United States Department of Education Strengthening Institutions Title III grant.

I have co-authored a piece that grew from this work -- Wiki-hacking: Opening Up the Academy with Wikipedia.

What I'm Interested in Thinking About on Wikipedia[edit]

- Wikipedia as a site of co-authoring

- Wikipedia (which is not quite an encyclopedia) within the tradition of encyclopedia writing in the humanities
