About Dr. 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 (A.S.), English (B.A., M.A.), and Education (Ed.D.). His doctoral coursework was focused on School Improvement and Instructional Technology. His dissertation was an exploratory study of student use of social media at an access institution, examining potential impacts on student engagement and retention. He was recently a HASTAC Scholar working in/on and writing about Digital Humanities. In 2010-2011, he served as 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, Dr. 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. In late spring 2015, two of his book reviews were published, one each in Linguistics & Education and Educational Review

Formerly of Jacksonville, FL, he currently resides in Rome, with his wife, daughter, son, and a completely neurotic dog. 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.
