Dr. Pariss Garramone's interdisciplinary work examines the intersections of creativity, experiential learning, community involvement, writing pedagogy and curriculum theory, with a focus on social and environmental justice issues. Her teaching and pedagogical research engage ecocomposition practices that draw on Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC), feminist, and ecoliteracy scholarship.
