Elise Takehana

20: December 2017

Elise Takehana, Assistant Professor of English Studies at Fitchburg State University, teaches writing including first year composition, creative nonfiction, media conscious storytelling, and magazine journalism. Much of her teaching works to orient students to the contours of writing as medium and its relationship to other non verbal media. Her research interests include composition and rhetoric, media studies, aesthetics, and 20th and 21st century text production. She is currently working on her book, The Baroque Technotext, a study of baroque aesthetics and their application across contemporary print and digital literature, forthcoming from Intellect Press, summer 2018. Recent essays by Professor Takehana include "Prying Open the Oyster: Creating a Digital Learning Space from the Robert Cormier Archive” in The ALAN Review, "The Shape of Thought: Humanity in Digital, Literary Texts” in Comunicazioni Sociali, and a co-authored article she produced with her students "Can You Murder a Novel?” in Hybrid Pedagogy.
