I am an assistant professor of digital rhetorics in the Department of Rhetoric and Writing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock where I teach courses on digital narrative, web design, document design, and multimodal composition. As a feminist rhetorician and composer of multimodal work, my interdisciplinary research emphasizes the role of the body and sensate engagement in new media, performance, and activist contexts. In my scholarship, I draw on theories of space and place to illuminate the rhetorical force and function of mediated performances in and across digital and face-to-face contexts, and I am most interested in youth-driven community research and pedagogies focused on activist, coalitional new media productions. In 2015, my co-authored webtext titled “Performing Urgency: Slamming and Spitting as Critical and Creative Response to State Crisis” was published in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy and won the journal’s 2016 Best Webtext Award. I serve on the editorial board for Feminist Formations, a leading academic journal in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.
