Andy Ross brings to the Center for Leadership Education over a decade of experience teaching interdisciplinary writing and communication courses at universities across the country. His academic training is in the environmental humanities; this capacious, praxis-oriented approach to the intersections of the arts and sciences informs many of his courses, as represented by a number of recent course topics: “the Anthropocene,” the aesthetics and ethics of environmental justice, writing about the watershed, environmental literature, communication in biomedical engineering, and technical communication. His place-based pedagogy encourages students to write about the communities, issues, and landscapes they care most about, and to experience the civic engagement of communicating with public audiences. His scholarship about the history and visual culture of science writing has been published in Science Communication, Oxford Bibliographies Online, and Early American Literature.
