Neven has been coaching undergraduates to write better essays since 2007.  By training he is an intellectual historian of eighteenth century Scotland, but has made a living teaching anything but the Scottish Enlightenment.  He has taught in the Humanities or the Social Sciences at Simon Fraser, Ottawa, Concordia, Bishop’s, Trent and Toronto .  At Carleton he teaches in the College of Humanities and in the History Department.  His research interests include the history of ideas, especially in the social sciences.

Neven’s mission at the College of Humanities is to coach an already strong group of undergraduates to improve their written expression.  Neven’s appointment as the CofH writing coach is the most athletic thing he has done since “winning” the uncoveted participation pin in the 1982 Canada fitness test.  Students are encouraged to greet Neven as “coach”, as he will find this endlessly entertaining.
