Matt Vetter[edit]

I'm Matt Vetter, Associate Professor of English at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. 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 ideological and epistemological functions of technologies and communities and the possibilities for human intervention and praxis within those communities.

As of August 2021, I am serving as a regional grants committee officer for United States and Canada.

I am also a 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.

As of December 2022, I am a certified Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom trainer.

I am a trained Wikipedia Campus Ambassador and I enjoy leading workshops for academic audiences on how to get involved in the encyclopedia. Wikipedia:United_States_Education_Program/Campus_Ambassadors

As of 2019, I am also a member of the CCCC Wikipedia Initiative, a task force dedicated to improving article content related to rhetoric and writing studies in Wikipedia, and increasing understanding of the encyclopedia among academics.
