David MorgenInstructional Technologist

David is the Project Manager of Domain of One’s Own at Emory University and Coordinator of the Emory Writing Program. At Emory, he has taught courses in first-year composition and sophomore poetry class and used to help run the Writing Center. Before coming to Emory, he was a Brittain Fellow at Georgia Tech and also taught at the University of West Georgia and at Longwood University in Virginia. He did his graduate work in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University but left before finishing his dissertation (which was on child-raising and the frontier in turn-of-the-century America and ecocriticism).

David is the father of two wonderful daughters who, though he can’t quite bring himself to believe it, are becoming teenagers. He’s also a semi-professional photographer and an untalented but passionate painter. He’s played rhythm and lead guitar in a few bands in recent years, though these days he mostly just regrets not being able to play more often. And he’s the president and webmaster for his Unitarian Universalist congregation in Atlanta. He’s been an actor in a community Shakespearean theater company (best roles: Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet and Speed in Two Gentlemen of Verona).

In 2007, David took a photo and posted it on Flickr every day. In 2008, he tried to take a self-portrait every day but he only made it 228/366ths of the way through before throwing in the towel.
