Prison Pedagogy, Adult Education, Writing Across the Curriculum, Writing Centers as Sites for Social Engagement
Emma (EJ) Harris (she/her/hers) joins the MSU WRAC community after earning her BA in English: Professional and Public Writing from Auburn University. She is an avid reader, runner, swing dancer, and knitter and loves any chance to get outside. Her first WC bio at Auburn was “equal parts Rory Gilmore, Hermione Granger, and cookie dough ice cream,” and she believes that stands to this day. At MSU, she will be a part of the Critical Studies in Literacy and Pedagogy MA program and working as The Writing Center graduate coordinator for STAF (Strategies & Tools for Teaching Across Fields). Her research interests include prison pedagogy, adult education, writing across the curriculum, and writing centers as sites for social engagement. She’s looking forward to being included in a community that values inclusivity and accessibility both within and beyond our program and sees MSU as an incredible place to gain more tools to empower students’ lifelong learning and agency.
