Anne Wettersten began her study of English Language and Literature at Smith College where she wrote her honors thesis on the revisionary poetry of H.D. She continued to pursue her interests in 19th and 20th Century women’s writing, art, and film studies at Rutgers University where she became concurrently active in the teaching of writing. She teaches first-year writing and literature courses at the University of Connecticut and mentors student tutors in the Greater Hartford Campus Writing Center as part of her work as a faculty writing consultant. Much of her recent teaching thematizes identity and place as in one of her most frequently taught first-year writing seminars: “Identities on the Boundary: Transformations and Transgressions.” This course focuses on relationships between identity and place in diverse literary-historical and rhetorical contexts. One of her central motivations as a college English instructor is to help students gain confidence as academic writers and to discover ways that writing courses at all levels can be transformative in helping them become curious, creative, and engaged life-long learners and citizens.
