John Sewell

As an educator my goal is twofold: to provide viable career training, and to foster critical thinking in hope of spurring progressive social change. Although my professional history and current focus at UWG is in journalism, I also have a strong background in critical theory, cultural studies and critical/rhetorical ethnography. My research includes identity studies, gender and sexuality studies, queer studies and subculture studies. I am excited to be working with the staff of The West Georgian, and have high expectations for the newspaper this year.
