Derkatch-teaching

I teach courses on rhetoric and writing studies in Ryerson’s Department of English and Literatures of Modernity Graduate Program. I’m also on faculty in the joint Ryerson-York University Graduate Program in Communication and Culture. I have supervised students in both graduate programs, in projects on, for example, literature and medicine, poetics and the body, and rhetorics of alternative food marketing and activism. I am honoured to have received the 2013 Ryerson Faculty of Arts New Faculty Teaching Award.
