Hi, everyone! My name is Thomas Passwater. I am a fourth semester grad student in the Written Communication program, on the teaching of writing ‘track’. I am a graduate assistant: in that role, I teach one section of WRTG 121 and work in two satellite locations of the writing center. Before coming to Eastern, I did my undergrad at East Carolina in English studies. There I was able to work as an undergrad writing consultant in their writing center and study abroad in London.
As I am trying to complete my MA here, my project takes on inflections of material, spatial, and visual rhetorics. I’m excited to have the opportunity to study visual rhetoric now. After completing my MA, I’m hoping to pursue a Rhetoric and Composition PhD.
