My research

I study rhetoric, focusing on the role that rhetoric plays in forming identity.  I have published in the areas of Southern identity, social movements and animal rights, visual rhetoric, and women and the media.  I also publish work in the area of communication centers.

I just finished working on two book projects.  One is with Ashli Quesinberry Stokes about the role of Southern food in the development of Southern identity.  I’ve also been working on an edited volume with Esther Yook called Communicating Advice:  Peer Tutoring and Communication Practice (to be published by Peter Lang in 2015).
