Dr. Steven S. Kapica is director of writing and lecturer of English for the School of the Humanities. He has been teaching composition and humanities courses at the college level since 1999. Prior to receiving his doctorate from Northeastern University in Boston, MA, he was English and reading department chair at Davidson County Community College in North Carolina.

Dr. Kapica's teaching and curricular strategies are driven by a commitment to writing growth and discovery. Bolstered by nearly two decades of success and experimentation, he is committed to using emergent technologies as sites for engaged pedagogy. Most of all, however, he is dedicated to facilitating students’ maturation as writers and thinkers. His current research focuses on the relationship between composition and technology, as well as the creation and maintenance of rhetorical and compositional spaces. He is also committed to the rhetorical interrogation of popular culture, specifically with regard to moments of cultural transgression. Dr. Kapica has published articles in Jump Cut, Law, Culture, and the Humanities, and the Griffith Law Review.
