Teaching Assistant Professor / Director of Digital Literacy and Communications Lab

2012, Ph.D., University of California, Santa Cruz


My interdisciplinary research brings together Composition and Rhetoric, Digital Humanities, and Feminist Studies to study the rhetoric of history as it unfolds in the space of archives. By focusing on the intersection of digital protocols and the rhetoric of archival structures, such as categorization, indexing, and tagging practices, I interrogate how notions of race, gender, and national belonging are produced in and through archival spaces.
