Eble named ATTW president

Michelle Eble, associate professor in the Department of English at East Carolina University, was named President of the Association of Teachers of Technical Writing at the organization’s annual meeting March 18 in Tampa, Fla.

Eble, who also serves as the English department’s Director of Graduate Studies, has been a member of ATTW since 2008. In that time, she has served as both conference coordinator and vice president. Her term as president will last three years, and she will also serve as chair of the executive committee during that time.

Eble ran on a platform of fostering more graduate student participation in ATTW, diversifying the membership, supporting partnerships with other technical communication organizations, and expanding the organization’s global presence—all while sustaining ATTW’s current commitments.

The Association of Teachers of Technical Writing (ATTW) is an active professional organization of about 500 teachers, researchers, and practitioners of technical communication. Formed in 1973 to encourage dialogue among teachers of technical communication and to develop technical communication as an academic discipline, the organization boasts an international and interdisciplinary membership. ATTW produces Technical Communication Quarterly, a leading academic journal, and it collaborates with Taylor & Francis/Routledge to publish the ATTW Book Series in Technical and Professional Communication.

Bauer profiled by grad school


The ECU Graduate School has released a faculty profile of English department distinguished professor Margaret Bauer.

“For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a teacher,” Bauer said in the profile. “Then, during high school, an English teacher, Mrs. Cotton, showed us how much Kate Chopin had packed into her two-page short story, “The Story of an Hour,” and I wanted to learn how to read like that, how to see all of those wonderful details, the numerous nuances that revealed the story of a woman’s whole life in just two pages.”
