Michael Brittain, PhD:
Jeff Marchand: I am currently a second year PhD student and an Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistant in the English Department. I have finished course work and will be taking comps in Fall 2016. Although I am still exploring fields for specialization, I have worked extensively in ecocriticism, postcolonial/race studies, feminism, and film studies. I received my MA in English from UTA in August 2014 and currently teach for the First Year Writing Program. In my spare time, I love reading, listening to various types of music, and playing volleyball (as much as possible).
Hope McCarthy: I am a PhD student in English with particular interests in Victorian literature and culture, composition studies, young adult literature, mystery novels, and sociolinguistics. In addition, I hold an MA in English and BA in Education. I have experience tutoring students in writing both privately and in university writing centers, and I have also worked as a public school English teacher. In addition, I teach English 1301 and 1302 here at UTA in the First Year Writing Program. My personal interests include jogging, playing guitar, reading British mystery novels, and spending time with family and friends.
Jason Hogue: I'm a third-year PhD student of English Literature, specializing in early modern literature, medieval literature, and ecocriticism. I'm interested particularly in Robin Hood/outlaw studies, new materialisms, and critical animal studies. I have taught composition and rhetoric courses for five years, previously at the University of West Florida, where I received my master's degree in English in 2012. Recently, I have contributed entries to The Map of Early Modern London, an interactive wiki, and have done transcription work for EMROC, the Early Modern Recipes Online Collection. In my free time, I enjoy participating at UTA's community garden - it's nearly time to harvest tomatoes!
