Julianne Newmark teaches Technical & Professional Communication (TPC) and serves as the Assistant Director of Core Writing and the Coordinator of the TPC certificate and minor. Her research interests concern the school-to-work transition, multimodal community-creation in online classrooms, and usability/user-centered design. Newmark also publishes, teaches, and conducts research in an area of Indigenous Studies that concerns early-twentieth-century Native activist writers’ rhetorically impactful navigations of bureaucratic writing conventions, particularly in Bureau of Indian Affairs contexts. She received a two-year 2017 CCCC/NCTE Emergent Research Grant for her book project "Reports of Agency: Retrieving Indigenous Professional Communication in Dawes Era Indian Bureau Documents.” Her 2015 book The Pluralist Imagination from East to West in American Literature was published by University of Nebraska Press. Newmark is also the Editor-in-Chief of Xchanges, a Writing Studies ejournal.
