Research Interests

Dr. Andersen's dissertation, "Co-responsibility in the Undergraduate Technical Communication Service Course: An Ethical Imperative," focuses on ethics in the web-based classroom, and investigates the possibility that the delivery of information in online undergraduate technical communication service courses may be an ethical responsibility that is shared between instructors and students. She is currently preparing an article on the topic of web-based learning for submission to the journal Technical Communication.

Her contributions to the community include a grant for the Texas Boys Ranch, and a style guide for "International Amateur-Professional Photoelectric Photometry." She recently served as a referee for the journal Technical Communication.

Bio

Dr. Carol Erwin is a Professor of English and Chair of Languages & Literature at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM. She has been teaching full-time at ENMU for 14 years. Her current research projects are two-fold: she examines how violence is gendered in both Victorian and contemporary texts and how the working-class male is appropriated for middle-class purposes in Victorian society. She has articles published in Watchung Review and Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies. She has also recently published a chapter in the book, Reading Westworld and co-authored a developmental writing textbook called The Writer

Research Interests

The laboring body is a conflicted site in the Victorian time period for it could connote either disease and riot or health and productivity, depending on its setting. My literary research projects examines how violence is gendered and includes examinations of illustrations of the working classes in Punch and the novels of Elizabeth Braddon, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell, Thomas Hardy, and Anthony Trollope. My other research interest is decreasing the gap between high school and college expectations. I've co-authored a developmental college writing curriculum, Writing in Patterns, and have presented elements of this approach at the NCTE Conference.
