Faculty Profile Video by Eddie Webb

I am a faculty member of the English Department at Mesa Community College. I teach English courses in several areas including English as a Second LanguageCollege Writing, Linguistics and Literature.

My research interests include Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Composition, Rhetoricand Critical Discourse Studies. To me, all these academic areas share a common threadLanguage and social life are inextricably intertwined. To understand one, the other must be studied and critically analyzed; and to learn language well and use it effectively, one must understand and appreciate how language is used to represent the world and establish and maintain social relationships and identities.

My research as well as my teaching is informed by Critical Discourse Studies, Multimodal Discourse, and Systemic Functional Linguistics.

In addition to teaching at MCC, I have served as the Director of the Jordan Study Abroad program, offered through the International Education Program. Currently, I am the Area Chair of Arab Culture in the U.S. at the annual conference of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (see CFP for 2015). I am also the Web Coordinator for the Arab American Studies Association.
