James Truman received his PhD in English from UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been teaching composition and literature for over 20 years, including classes on historical linguistics, business writing, and writing center theory, as well as courses on Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Milton. Most recently, he comes from Auburn University where he was Assistant Director of University Writing from 2013 to 2019, with primary responsibility for running the Miller Writing Center. As part of a university-wide writing initiative, he worked with students and faculty to enhance the culture of writing and writing instruction across campus. He enjoys spending time with his family, which includes three dogs and a cat. He also plays old-time fiddle, which annoys the cat.
