David Kellogg received a Ph.D. and M.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an M.A. from the Johns Hopkins University Writing Seminars, and a B.A. from Wake Forest University.
He comes to Coastal Carolina from Boston, where he directed the Advanced Writing in the Disciplines program at Northeastern University. He has also taught composition and scientific writing at Duke, and in the summer of 2010 was a Visiting Senior Fellow in the Department of Biological Sciences at the National University of Singapore, where he taught a graduate class in scientific writing.
In his original field of twentieth-century poetry and poetics, he published articles on poets (including Charles Olson and Thomas Kinsella) and theorists (including Marjorie Perloff) as well as his own poetry in a range of journals. His recent work in composition and the rhetoric of science has been published in journals such as CCC and Pedagogy and as a chapter in the edited collection Writing Against the Curriculum. His paper "Toward a Post-Academic Science Policy: Scientific Communication and the Collapse of the Mertonian Norms," won two awards: the 2006 Access to Knowledge (A2K) Writing Competition, sponsored by the Information Society Project at Yale Law School and the International Journal of Communications Law and Policy, and the 2007 award for Best Article in the Philosophy or Theory of Scientific and Technical Communication, given by the National Council of Teachers of English.
He is currently finishing a textbook, Writing Laboratory Science: A Guide for Emerging Investigators, and beginning work on a monograph, The Rhetoric of Anti-Science: Definitions and Exclusions along the Scientific Borderlands.
