I study new media, multimodal composing, qualitative research methods,
and rhetoric, culture, & postmodern theory. Lately, I've been into how
teachers express themselves in their
classrooms, so I'm writing up data
from this 
national study I conducted—whether, how, and why LGBTQ-

identified writing teachers come out to their students. Here are some 
select publications:
 

Baumann, Michael. Book review: Holt, Mara. Collaborative Writing as
Democratic Practice: A History
. NCTE, 2018. Studies in Writing and Rhetoric
series. (under review at College Composition and Communication)


Baumann, Michael, and Darolyn Jones. “Unschooling in Community Literacy
Outreach: Merging School and Community Teaching Practices.” Journal of
Teaching Writing
, vol. 35, no. 2, 2021. pp. 69-108. (online publication forthcoming)
