About Ivan Davis

I joined the Andrews University English department in 1997. My specialty area is rhetoric and composition, which means I teach a variety writing classes, including general education writing courses, Introduction to Rhetoric (part of the English major core), and graduate courses on teaching composition.  I also direct our writing program.
In 2002, I received my PhD in English from Ball State University.  My dissertation, Influence and Collaboration in the Work of Fred Newton Scott, examines a pivotal figure in composition theory and pedagogy from the early 20th century, and I continue to pursue scholarship focused on the history of composition, both theory and practice.
In addition to my work in the English department, I have edited Focus: The Andrews University Magazine, and coached the Andrews University Women’s Basketball Team.  My wife, Brynja Davis, teaches in the department of speech-language pathology and audiology at Andrews, and we have three children, Bryndis, Leif and Axel.  In my spare time, I enjoy camping, playing and watching sports, and reading American history.
