Welcome to your Home on the Web!

If you are in one of Christopher Dean's classes at UCSB, then you are at a page where you can, if your are so inclined, learn more about your professor for Writing 2. Probably the most relevant thing you can read is my Curriculum Vitae, which lists my academic qualifications for teaching you and others. You can read an html version of this document by clicking here. Also, to get a broader sense of where Chris teaches, and you learn, check out the Writing Program Homepage (http://www.writing.ucsb.edu) and the Webpage for Specialization in Language, Literacy, and Composition Studies (http://education.ucsb.edu/Graduate-Studies/Education/programsofstudy/lang-lit-cs.htm).

Below is some less useful, but somewhat interesting stuff.

About Me
I'm a teacher of writing at UCSB, and I have been a teacher of reading and writing for 13 years.

Interests
Teaching writing, Punk music, Desperate Housewives, animation, guitar, soccer running, and computers.

Favorite Movies
The Godfather , City of Lost Children, Endless Summer, Supersize Me, Roger and Me and Bringing up Baby.

Favorite Music
Any and all. However, I've been on a Velvet Underground jag as of late, but I've also been listening to lots of Miles Davis. Go figure.

Favorite Books
Too many to mention. However, folks like Herman Hesse, William Shakespeare, Stephen Crane, Sandra Cisneros, Alice Walker, and others have all moved me greatly. I'm a better person for having read their work.

Again, welcome, and if you need to contact me, then email me at cdean@writing.ucsb.edu. I look forward to working with you this semester--both face-to-face and in cyberspace.
