Joseph Petraglia-Bahri

Assistant Professor,
School of Literature, Communication, and Culture

Joseph Petraglia-Bahri (Carnegie Mellon, 1991) is an Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Cognitive Science in the Georgia Institute of Technology's School of Literature, Communication and Culture (LCC). His primary teaching focus is on introductory courses in rhetorical theory, rhetoric and textual practices in science and technology, and cognitive approaches to educational technology. Primary research interests include the rhetoric of inquiry, comparative methodology, socio-cognitive approaches to learning, international education, and the rhetoric of educational technology.

Current collaborative research projects include the Rhetoric Resources at Tech (RRT), a web-based resource for introductory rhetoric courses, and Reality Check, a software project designed to facilitate constructivist learning. Petraglia-Bahri has recently edited Reconceiving Writing, Rethinking Writing Instruction (Lawrence Erlbaum, 1995) and his book Reality by Design: The Rhetoric and Technology of Authenticity in Education is forthcoming (also from Lawrence Erlbaum). He has published several articles on cognitivism and writing pedagogy, theories of social construction, and authenticity as an educational and technological objective.

He cannot be entrusted to raise children, keep pets, or smoke responsibly. It is only through the efforts of his wife, Deepika Petraglia-Bahri, a professor of post-colonial theory and literature at Emory University, that there are any living plants in their home.
