Rhetoric and Writing
First-year composition pedagogy; Writing Program Administration; Multilingual Writers; Feminist Rhetoric; Nineteenth-Century American Literature
Anne’s scholarship and research interests include authentic-learning centered pedagogy, the intersectional space of feminism and writing program administration, addressing the responsibility to multilingual writers in composition programs, with an emphasis on self-placement. Her current scholarly project, “Decolonizing the Composition Classroom,” analyzes colonized academic spaces and synthesizes that research to improve the first-year writing experience for marginalized populations in her own classrooms, through the integration of a visual syllabus, inclusion of marginalized writers in readings and intercultural rhetorics, and encouraging active response from students through integrated revisions assignments.
Currently, Anne teaches freshman composition courses and plans to teach technical communication and online courses in her upcoming year. She serves on the Core Writing Committee and heads the Student Success and Enrichment subcommittees. Anne has been nominated for the Susan Deese-Roberts Teaching Assistant award (2019), the Core Writing Outstanding New Teaching Assistant of the Year (2019), and has received the Arms Endowed Fund for American Literature Studies (2018).
