Research/Areas of Interest

My research lies at the intersection of rhetoric, writing, technology, theory, ethics, and teaching. My research argues that the increasing power and ubiquity of digital technologies calls for us to rethink both the obligations of rhetoric and our discipline’s pedagogic methods. Attending to phenomenological, feminist, and affective theories can help rhetoric develop an ethical orientation that leads to more productive public deliberation. Additionally, my research addresses how we, as scholars and teachers, can help realize these ethical and civic ambitions through postpedagogy, which I identify as prioritizing spontaneous, unpredictable learning over pre-programmed teaching. Finally, my research speaks to the growing importance of digital publishing and the digital humanities. A number of my publications are websites or multimodal installations. I am committed--both in my research and in my teaching--to leveraging digital technology in order to connect scholarly and pedagogical activity to the civic world.
