Introduction

Currently Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Ohio University Zanesville, I earned a Ph.D. in English from Ohio University in the Spring of 2015. During my time there, I  taught a variety of courses in writing and digital rhetoric and helped direct the writing program as Assistant Director of Composition. My dissertation project, “Teaching Wikipedia: The Pedagogy and Politics of an Open Access Writing Community,” focuses on opportunities provided by the encyclopedia for teaching writing while also working to interrogate its open access philosophy through an investigation of issues of access and representation. I have recently served as a a graduate fellow at the Digital Rhetoric Collaborative and am currently a PraxisWiki Section Editor at Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy.
