Thank you for visiting the site documenting my academic and professional work. I am an Associate Professor of English at Florida State University, with special interests in histories of rhetoric, histories and theories of composition, feminist rhetorical theory, digital humanities, global rhetorics, and multilingualism. I teach primarily in the Editing, Writing, and Media undergraduate major and in the Rhetoric and Composition graduate program, and I regularly lead a Digital Humanities discussion group and collaboratory. Frequently, I teach students in and about archives and archival practices. I am also affiliated with the Demos Center Project for the Study of Data Humanities at FSU.
In both teaching and research, I consider intersections of language, class, ethnicity, memory, and/or privilege, and I promote an understanding of critical and historical methods that equip writers and readers for more informed civic engagement. Every few years, I work within a thematic strand at the intersection of several interests. For example, I recently completed a book at the intersection of rhetoric, feminism, history and language, and I am working on another project at the intersection of rhetoric, digital humanities, historiography, and archives. I am also currently conducting transnational research on archives in southern Africa.
From 2018-2020, I am serving as President of the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition, and for the past several years, I have been co-chairing a Special Interest Group in “Non-Western/Global Rhetorics” for the Conference on College Composition and Communication (learn more about this group on the 3/15/18 CCCC podcast, starting at 26:15). Recently, I joined the CCCC’s new Wikipedia Initiative Task Force.
