Irene Papoulis teaches essay writing in various forms and is currently the Director of Academic Advising and Faculty Development.

She is interested in how writers work in any genre, from the initial formation of ideas to the problems and delights of revision. Her academic interests include psychological approaches to the teaching of writing, creative nonfiction, writing in the public sphere, gender issues, and contemplative practices in the classroom. She is also a longtime Faculty Associate of the Institute for Writing and Thinking at Bard College, and the book review editor of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL).

She appears as an occasional Friday radio panelist on the Colin McEnroe Show, broadcast on Connecticut's Public Radio (WNPR).
