Jenny is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her scholarship focuses on bodily rhetorics and rhetorics of health and medicine. She is particularly interested in the language surrounding the treatment of mental and physical health disorders affecting women and the related ways in which women use writing to assert autonomy in literary and popular culture contexts, such as on social media.
Jenny worked as a writing tutor for many years while completing her undergraduate and master’s degrees in English, and now she enjoys helping college students hone their reading and writing skills as a teaching fellow.
