Welcome to my portfolio. I am a third-year doctoral student in the Department of English at Bowling Green State University with a specialization in Rhetoric and Writing. In August (2013) I completed preliminary and oral examination, and I am currently finishing my dissertation prospectus. I teach first-year writing with the General Studies Writing department at BGSU as part of my assistantship. I am an associate editor for Computers & Composition: An International Journal, the digital projects consultant for Itineration, and the web coordinator of Qualitative Research Network.
My research currently focuses on digital tracking technologies and surveillance, networked process, identity and technology, advovacy of multimodal composition, and cyberfeminist interventions of digital writing spaces. I am most interested in exploring what is left behind or sacrificied in the rush to "keep up" with the latest technological advancements or teasing out ideological forces that shape online experiences.
My teaching has focused on exploring various multimodal elements--text, sound, visual, and spatial modes--and how by combining certain modes communications become enhanced or nuanced. My purpose is to help prepare students to not only be consumers of digital rhetorics, but also to be producers of multimodal compositions for particular communicative needs.
My service focuses on community building within the university through connecting with faculty and peers about concerns relevant to institutional practices with a focus on integrating more multimodal work in writing programs.
