Dr. Richardson investigates Richmond, Richmond Literature and the stories we tell about ourselves. Dr. Richardson is interested in the way Richmond affects writing and is curious to see if this place has evolved a characteristic narrative. Dr. Richardson writes articles, essays, short stories, scripts and books. Dr. Richardson speaks, presents and performs around town; lately, he has been involved in making public, functional art. Dr. Richardson’s classes are premised on a very simple principle: you came to VCU to learn, not just to be taught. Class involves activity, projects, imagining, and engaging in community service.
