My areas of expertise are in rhetoric and writing, and my research and teaching focus on rhetorical history and historiography, feminist rhetorics, and community writing. In my research, I use archival and historical methods to investigate 19th and 20th century women's rhetorics of place-making and protest. I am currently working on a book-length manuscript tentatively titled Organizing Women: Rhetoric, Labor, and the Struggle for Feminist Solidarity in Progressive Era Chicago. A portion of this project recently appeared in Rhetoric Review and investigates how Jane Addams and her Hull House colleagues created cosmopolitan spaces that enabled women to claim worldly citizenship, and, in turn, expertise over labor in an international market. I received my PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in February 2018, and joined the UNT faculty in fall 2018.
