Advising

I advise students who want to include a rhetorical perspective in their research and teaching, whether that means through theory, history, or analysis, and I’m particularly interested in working with students across disciplines, especially those interested in the following areas:

  • Public Rhetorics and Rhetorical Theory
  • Public Policy and Infrastructure
  • Science and Technology Studies

You can email me or make an appointment to talk about potential projects. In the past, I’ve worked with students to design research projects, write grants, and develop their dissertation/thesis projects.
