Jonathan is Chancellor's Professor of English, Campus Writing Coordinator, and Director of the Center for Excellence in Writing and Communication at the University of California, Irvine. Jonathan has authored or edited eleven books, including Literacy, Sexuality, Pedagogy: Theory and Practice for Composition Studies, and the co-authored Finding Out: An Introduction to LGBT Studies. Jonathan's work focuses primarily on the use of emerging communications technologies in the teaching of writing and in shifting conceptions of what writing, composing, and authoring mean. Along these lines, Jonathan also works at the intersection of the fields of writing studies and sexuality studies, where he explores what discursive theories of sexuality have to teach us about literacy and literate practice in pluralistic democracies. His books have been nominated for various awards, including the Lambda Literary Award and the Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award, and he is a three-time recipient of the Ellen Nold Award for Best Articles in the field of Computers and Composition Studies.
