Postdoctoral Teaching Associate in English

Dan Metzger is a critical practitioner-researcher whose scholarship focuses on supporting first-year student experience in gateway writing courses. His dissertation, titled “Journaling on the Transition to College: Foucauldian Approaches in the First-Year Writing Classroom,” explores using low stakes critical reflection with first-year writing students to interrogate power relationships in higher education and to build students’ agency as they enter college. Dan’s teaching and research also focuses on how our intersectional social identities affect our experiences as learners, and how we can use writing as an act of engaged citizenship and to advance social equity.

Dan previously taught first-year writing at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, PA. Prior to receiving his EdD in Transformational Teaching and Learning from Kutztown University (KU), he earned a BA in English from KU and a MA in English from the University of Massachusetts Boston, where he taught literature courses.
