I'm Matt Vetter, Associate Professor of English at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where I am affiliate faculty in the Composition and Applied Linguistics (CAL) Program. I hold a PhD in English with a specialization in writing, rhetoric, and digital humanities from Ohio University. As a scholar, I am primarily interested in the ways technologies shape writing and writing pedagogy. I am drawn toward investigations of the the ideological and epistemological functions of technologies and communities and the possibilities for human intervention and praxis within those communities.

I am also a somewhat frequent participant in the Wiki Education Program. As a teacher of writing, I see a lot of benefits to Wikipedia writing projects and I try to be active in these communities. Finally, I am a trained Wikipedia Campus Ambassador and I enjoy leading workshops for academic audiences on how to get involved in the encyclopedia.
