and teaching interests
My work falls within the broad categories of critical rhetorical studies,
cultural studies, media criticism, intercultural communication, feminist theory
and criticism, and environmental communication. My current research program is
focused on the place of indigenous “rock art” (petroglyphs and pictographs) in
the contemporary western landscape and various other forms of marking the
landscape and engaging in more-than-human dialogues.
