About Professor Bishop

Jesse Bishop has been teaching at GHC since January, 2005, serving in a variety of roles. A graduate of Floyd College and the University of West Georgia, he holds degrees in psychology, English, and soon a doctorate in Education focusing on School Improvement and Instructional Technology. He is current at a HASTAC Scholar working on and writing about Digital Humanities. In 2010-2011, he was named a Governor's Teaching Fellow in the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia. In addition to teaching composition, literature, creative writing, and interdisciplinary courses, Professor Bishop is co-advisor to the GHC literary magazine, Old Red Kimono.

His research interests include social media use in higher education, student engagement, access institutions, research-based writing pedagogy, instructional design and technology, semiotics and composition, Herman Melville, Tony Hoagland, and representations of masculinity in contemporary American poetry and prose. His poetry and essays have been published in several journals, including The Yalobusha ReviewPebble Lake Review, and O'Tempora Magazine. His poems have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. He has work forthcoming in Linguistics and Education and in Education Review (to be published in late Spring 2015). 

A Jacksonville, FL, native, he currently resides in Rome, with his wife, daughter, son, and a completely neurotic dog. At the moment, he is in a very complicated relationship with his dissertation. When not teaching, reading, researching, writing, or grading papers (like that happens), Professor Bishop enjoys coaching his daughter's soccer teams, attending Rome Braves' baseball and Falcons' football games, watching horror films, and going to concerts.
