Interests and Expertise
Logan Bearden joined the Written Communication program in the fall of 2016. He has previously taught courses in composition (at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced level), the history of rhetoric, writing in/for multiple environments, and editing. His research focuses on multimodality (as a field of study and literate practice), writing program administration, and curricular revision. His dissertation explored how and in what contexts different composition programs undergo what he terms multimodal curricular transformation. Future research projects will continue this line of inquiry, working toward models of multimodal curricular transformation for composition programs in various institutional contexts.
