Office Hours:

Bob Imbur (BA in English and MFA in Creative Writing, University of Notre Dame) is an Associate Lecturer in the Composition program. Prior to his arrival at UT, Bob held high school and university teaching appointments in northern Indiana.  An active reviewer of nationally published composition textbooks, Bob’s feedback is acknowledged in recent or upcoming editions of The Blair Reader (Pearson Prentice-Hall), Rereading America (Bedford-St. Martin’s) and The World is a Text (Pearson Prentice-Hall). Bob was a 2003 Lilly Endowment Fellow and is a former editorial assistant for The Notre Dame Review, and his essays have appeared in the Toledo Blade and South Bend Tribune. Bob’s first novel and MFA thesis, Vacationland, is set in Ohio’s Lake Erie islands and blissfully collects dust on a shelf in the Notre Dame Library.  His novel-in-progress, Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle, is based on his travels to Dubai and his wife’s native Scotland.  A shameless Scottish wannabe, Bob’s research interests include Scottish literature, film, and culture.  A former Drum Major of the Notre Dame Marching Band, Bob supports Fighting Irish football and Glasgow Celtic soccer with equally fruitless passion.  He has two children.
