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 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.
