This is the main blog/website for Steven D. Krause, aka Steve.
I am a Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Most of my teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels explores the connections between writing and technology. I edited (along with Charles Lowe) the collection Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Online Open Courses, published by Parlor Press. Some of my recent scholarship has appeared in the journals College Composition and Communication, Kairos, Computers and Composition, and The Chronicle of Higher Education and in the edited collections Designing Web-Based Applications for 21st Century Writing Classrooms and Writing Spaces. I’ve also given many different invited talks and presentations. This blog won the John Lovas Memorial Weblog award from Kairos in 2011.
Not So Professional Biography
I’m happily married to Annette Wannamaker, who is also a professor at Eastern Michigan University. We have a son named William Steven Wannamaker Krause (Will for short) who is now a student at the University of Michigan (and out of the house, at least during the school year) and still the coolest kid in the world as far as we’re concerned. We had a border collie/sheltie/etc. mix of a dog named Sophie who passed away March 1, 2017, just shy of her 15th birthday. We live in a lovely little house in Ypsilanti, Michigan, about a mile from where we work at EMU and less than ten miles from downtown Ann Arbor.
