queer rhetorics, feminist rhetorics, multimodal and digital composition, cultural rhetorics
My main main research interests center queer and feminist rhetorics, digital and multimodal rhetorics, writing centers, and cultural rhetorics. Most of my work focuses on queer multimodal composition, but I also engage in work on military wife identity construction and in writing center studies. While all three of these subjects might seem disparate, they all are rooted in individual and community identity formation and world-building.
