Jed Dobson is ABD in English at Indiana University. His dissertation, "The Awkward Age of Autobiography," examines American fin-de-siecle autobiography and its relation to questions of historiography. Dobson's interest in intellectual history focuses particularly on the transformation of disciplinary knowledge in the late nineteenth century. His Writing 5, "The University in the Popular Imagination," asks students to write several short papers responding to current articles on the state of higher education; subsequent papers will build on these shorter papers as students develop their positions via evidence-based claims.
