What I do:
My scholarly interests begin at digital rhetoric and composition studies, often with an orientation toward social web activism and to new media’s ability to unlock the creative potential of 21-century composers. I work within the disciplines of composition and rhetoric, typically incorporating civics, ethics, media study and critical theory into my research and pedagogy.
I approach Teaching as a research project, and actively create avenues in which my scholarly inquiries and my classrooms converge. Examples of this endeavor include Sparking Change, an activist web publication I produced with my FYC students at SUNY Cortland in the Spring of 2017, as well as Stand Up!, a social web activism project, culminating in the Retold Histories of Clemson public humanities project I enacted with my FYC courses at Clemson University in the 2018-2019 academic year.
