As an associate professor in the Communication and Digital Media Department at Saint Joseph’s University, I focus on the theory and practice of media design. My research interests include:
visual rhetoric | digital rhetoric | cultural rhetoric | multimodal communication | digital humanities | civic media
I have a Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Rhetoric and Writing with concentrations in digital and cultural rhetorics and an M.A. in Central and Eastern European Studies from Uniwersytet Jagielloński. For more information, please see my CV.
My published work appears in Computers and Composition, Computers and Composition Online, the Journal of Business and Technical Communication, Harlot: A Revealing Look at the Arts of Persuasion and the edited collection Making Space: Writing Instruction, Infrastructure, and Multiliteracies published by University of Michigan Press/Sweetland.
In 2010 I founded the Beautiful Social Research Collaborative where students have worked with over 60 nonprofits and community-based organizations to conduct digital media research projects to date.
