Benjamin Miller holds an MFA in poetry from Columbia University, and is now a PhD candidate in the English program at the CUNY Graduate Center. His dissertation is a “distant reading” study of roughly 3,000 dissertations written between 2001 and 2010 in composition and rhetoric, exploring research- and discourse-communities through keywords. Ben taught introductory and upper-level Writing-About-Writing courses at Hunter College from 2008-2012; currently, he works with students and faculty in the Macaulay Honors College as an Instructional Technology Fellow, finding ways to improve teaching and learning through digital (and other) tools.
