Scholarly Work

Research and Publications


My current research focuses on visual rhetoric in social media.

Recent publications include a book chapter on hashtag activism in the #iLookLikeAnEngineer movement on Twitter, which began in 2015. I am also researching and writing about tomboy representation in visual media such as Instagram.

Presently, I am co-editing a collection of essays titled Reclaiming the Tomboy: The Body, Representation, and Identity. The book will be published by Lexington Books. Co-editors are Dr. Erica Dymond and Dr. Jen Harrison.
