Scott Eric Kaufman earned his doctorate in English at University of California, Irvine in the Summer of 2008. He earned his B.A. from Louisiana State University about a month before..
His scholarly interests once included everything—and he meant everything—pertaining to American literature and appropriations of evolutionary theory c. 1890-1910. Then he finished his dissertation and never wants to hear tell of it again. (He believes this is what the kids call "a phase" and that he will pass through it.)
He is currently under contract with Fountainhead Press to produce a book on visual rhetoric called, appropriately enough, Seeing Rhetoric. It will be published in 2011 if it kills him.
