Greg is a PhD student in English, specializing in rhetoric and composition. Most recently, he has been studying derogatory terms and people’s attempts to reclaim them as terms of honor. (Is “Quaker” still an insult? What about “queer”?) Because he loves studying the ways power and language are entangled, he also loves talking about rhetorical awareness and civic engagement with his English 15 and RCL classes. Greg lived on the island of Java, Indonesia for 15 years and consequently spends much of his free time trying to make improvised Indonesian food out of Pennsylvanian ingredients.
