Bio
Edward Helfers joined the Literature Department in 2015. His courses help students use the tools of rhetoric to engage in debates over ownership—of property, of culture, and of ideas. Research interests include accessibility in architecture, critical and creative writing form, and inclusion in higher education. A fiction writer and occasional essayist, his work has appeared in Puerto Del Sol, DIAGRAM, BOOTH, Web Conjunctions, The Nashville Review, The Rumpus, The Atlantic, and elsewhere.
