Research Agenda

My research is situated at the intersection of feminist rhetorics and technology. This area of study has yielded a variety of research projects relevant to feminist rhetorical histories, rhetorical analysis of economic discourse, and digital contemplative writing pedagogy. I'm currently working towards developing a more refined dissertation research question, but hope to situate my work within studies of coding literacy, like those of Annette Vee. To that end, I'm in the process of conducting an ethnographic pilot study of the ways in which graduate students in STEM fields are socialized into programming literacy and a rhetorical analysis of popular coding educational platform Codecademy. Additionally, I'm revising an article-length archival work on sonic feminist rhetorics and another on platform rhetorics in digitally networked sharing economies for future submission.
