Rhetoric and Writing
Julianne Newmark received her Ph.D. from Wayne State University in 2004. Her areas of specialization are technical communication (specifically the school-to-work transition via internships) and American literary studies (in particular multi-ethnic Americans' literary reactions to nativism in the early twentieth century). As a professor and scholar of technical communication, she has published in IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, Kairos, Technical Communication, and The Journal of Technical Writing and Communication. As an American literature scholar, she has published the book The Pluralist Imagination from East to West in American Literature (University of Nebraska Press, 2015) and in the journals Arizona Quarterly, Studies in American Indian Literatures, Western American Literature, Modern Language Studies, and others. She is the founding and current editor of the ejournal Xchanges, an undergraduate and graduate-student journal that publishes traditional and multimodal texts in the areas of TC, WAC, and rhetoric and writing. Her current areas of research in TC and writing studies concern comparative assessments of TC internship applicability to workplace scenarios. In literary studies, she is at work on a book manuscript concerning four early twentieth century Native American activist writers' strategies of pan-tribal textual advocacy for indigenous rights within a broader American context of "professional presence." She has long served as an officer in the D. H. Lawrence Society of North America, as she has published on Lawrence's "New Mexico period" writing, and she is currently the Society's elected archivist and social media coordinator. Prior to joining the faculty of University of New Mexico, Newmark was an associate professor at New Mexico Tech.
