Dr. Erin Andersen has completed a PhD in the English program at the Graduate Center.  Before coming to Centenary, Andersen taught as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY and administered and tutored in the online writing tutor program at the College of Saint Elizabeth.  Andersen is a life-long resident of rural New Jersey, but appreciates the influence of her work in New York City on her pedagogy.  An avid gardener and cook, a horse owner, and a New Jersey Devils hockey fan, Andersen lives with her husband and cats.

Research interests include feminist rhetorical studies, periodical studies, writing center pedagogy, writing program administration, and feminist materialism. Andersen’s dissertation, “Assessing the Cyborg Center: Assemblage and Feminist Based Frameworks for Multi-Faceted Writing Center Assessment,” makes connections between writing center studies, assessment research, and feminist materialism, and examines the potentiality for assemblage-based, anti-racist and feminist assessment protocols in writing centers.
