Robert Mundy, PhD, is an Associate Professor of English, Writing Program Director, and Chair of the Department of Writing and Cultural Studies. His teaching and research focuses on composition and rhetoric theory and practice, writing program assessment, masculinity studies, cultural studies, and literacy studies. His most recent project, Gender, Sexuality and the Cultural Politics of Men’s Identity in the New Millennium: Literacies of Masculinity (Routledge), maps the connections between media, popular culture, and the pedagogy of reading and writing the performances of masculinity. This book follows Out in the Center: Public Controversies, Private Struggles (Utah State University Press) (co-edited with Harry Denny, Anna Sicari, Lila Naydan, and Richard Severe), winner of the 2019 International Writing Center Association Book Award, which deepens conversations in writing centers about identity politics by foregrounding authentic voices and experiences of tutors and administrators navigating everyday sessions and the disclosure and embodiment of difference. With Harry Denny, Professor Mundy is writing a second manuscript (Routledge) that explores the intersection of popular culture, male identity creation and performativity, and literacy. He is presently conducting autoethnographic research that considers the intersection of masculinity, body modification, and literacy.
