Watters joined the Expository Writing Program at Johns Hopkins in 2013, and her work focuses on teaching undergraduates how to better understand, enter, and contribute to scholarly conversations of all kinds. Her recent courses include: “Introduction to the Research Paper: Controversies in Adolescence” and “Family Matters.” Before coming to Hopkins, Watters taught for three years in Harvard’s Expository Writing Program. She has co-written and edited four books with the American artist Taryn Simon: Paperwork, and the Will of Capital (Berlin: Hatje Cantz, 2016), A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters (London: Mack Books, 2011), An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar (London: Steidl, 2007), and An Occupation of Loss (forthcoming 2017). Watters graduated from Middlebury College summa cum laude and did her doctoral work in English Literature at Oxford as a Marshall Scholar, concentrating on the work of D.H. Lawrence. Other interests include multimodal writing and U.S. politics.
