Carly Schnitzler joined the University Writing Program as a Lecturer in 2023. Her teaching and research center on digital rhetoric, creative computation, and the public humanities. 

She is at work on two book projects. The first, TextGenEd: Teaching with Text Generation Technologies (co-edited with Annette Vee and Tim Laquintano), is a peer-reviewed, open-access collection of assignments on teaching with text generation technologies (i.e. ChatGPT, Markov chains, NLTKs, poem generators, etc.), to be published with WAC Clearinghouse in the fall of 2023. The second, Generations: Creative Computation, Community, and the Rhetorical Canon, is based off of her dissertation research and investigates what creative computation does to amplify and ameliorate social critiques of contemporary digital life. Her other critical work appears in refereed journals and edited collections: electronic book review, The CEA Critic, Textshop Experiments and Expressive Networks: Poetry and Platform Cultures, among others. She also founded and continues to co-organize If, Then: Technology and Poetics with Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, a community working group and event series promoting inclusivity and skills-building in creative computation for artists, scholars, and teachers.

Before coming to Hopkins, Carly taught writing and literature courses at UNC-Chapel Hill, where she received a variety of teaching awards in addition to her Ph.D. Her courses are oriented around digital and public humanities projects and she encourages collaboration, play, and thoughtful revision in (and outside) of the classroom.
