ABOUT SEAN SCANLAN:
I joined the City Tech English Department in 2010. Prior to arriving in Brooklyn, I lived in Iowa City, Iowa and taught English at the University of Iowa and Kirkwood Community College. I enjoy fixing things, painting, cycling, running, and Nordic skiing. Since moving to New York, I have become a student of the city, an amateur urban anthropologist. I live with my family in Park Slope, and I pretend that Prospect Park is my backyard.
My teaching and research interests include: American and world literature, New York City history and literature, new theories of narration, globalization, and homesickness, how to write music/book/architecture reviews, and the effect that technology has on reading and writing.
