English program PhD student, comp/rhet focus; John Jay GTF

A PhD student, my field is composition & rhetoric, focusing on feminist rhetorical studies, writing centers, writing program administration, & digital literacies. I’m interested in how spaces outside of the FYC classroom promote transfer & how they can be used in cooperation with FYC to help students connect writerly knowledge across circumstances.
