Craig A. Meyer earned his PhD from Ohio University with a focus on Rhetoric and Composition. He earned two master’s degrees from Missouri State University: Composition and Rhetoric and Creative Nonfiction. His research is diverse and covers many areas such as ethos, histories of rhetoric, dysfluency studies, creative writing, political discourse, and corruption in higher education. He’s published numerous articles and book chapters in various disciplines, but he’s drawn to popular culture projects that expand on our understanding of the Star Trek universe. He’s also a teacher/scholar with many presentations and workshops. Part of his skillset focuses on the pragmatics of writing and comprehension as well as the mental and emotional toll of scholarly work.
