Biographical Sketch

Mike Woal, Ph.D.

Mike Woal holds degrees in English and American Literature (B.A., the University of Pennsylvania; M.A., San Francisco State University) and in Radio/Television/Film and Mass Communication (M.A., Temple University; Ph.D. the Pennsylvania State University). He has taught on both coasts (at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA and at San Francisco State University) and in the Southwest (at the University of New-Mexico-Gallup Campus; he currently teaches English composition at Arizona State University-West in Glendale, AZ). Mike has published widely in areas such as media aesthetics, mass media research, and film history and social criticism. He has also participated in many professional conventions and forums.

Mike has developed curricula in English composition, literary criticism, writing for the media and media aesthetics. While San Francisco State University offered a teaching experience with a broad mix of students from that city’s diverse population, teaching English composition, as well as mass media history/survey courses to Navajo students at the University of New Mexico-Gallup Campus was a profound immersion in a truly “Native” American culture. This is reflected in his work at building an English composition curriculum at UNM-Gallup Campus that emphasizes one-on-one writer-editor sessions. This workshop approach to writing works well with the Arizona State University’s heterogeneous student body. All ASU students, whatever their backgrounds or academic and professional goals are required, of course, to succeed in the Composition Program’s writing classes.)

Along the way, Mike was faculty editor of UNM-Gallup’s Red Mesa Review, which published writing by new Native American voices and, with his wife, Linda (the director), helped found the annual Gallup Film Festival and sustain it through its 4 years. The festival featured Western, but especially Native American, films, and many Native American filmmak
