Greg Grewell earned B.A. and M.A. degrees in English at San Jose State University and a Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English at the University of Arizona. While his main research foci stem from his dissertation, entitled “Rhetoric of Ridicule,” Grewell maintains many other areas of interest as well, including: composition pedagogy history and theory, transfer studies, assessment practices, and rhetoric history and theory. His publications include a reader/rhetoric for teaching fyc and an essay on science fiction literature and films as colonial narratives. He recently collaborated on an article (accepted for publication) that examines ridicule as a game mechanic, with an especial focus on the function of ridicule in the Portal video games. When time permits, he looks forward to exploring New Mexico’s wildernesses. Grewell joined the English Department in 2014 as an Assistant Visiting Professor.
