I am currently a PhD student at Syracuse University in the Composition and Cultural Rhetoric program. My general research interests include feminist theory, disability studies, and fat studies. Within those very broad areas, I’m more specifically interested in embodiment, feminist epistemology, feminism and science/technology, the rhetoric of medicine and science, material rhetoric, and feminist methodology.

This blog is primarily meant to function as a place to store and organize some of my reading notes, particularly as I prepare to take my exams. My major exam area is in Rhetorics of the Body, and I am doing two minor exams in Feminist Methods and Methodologies and in Disability Studies. I consider all of the thoughts/readings offered here in-progress, and certainly welcome any comments.
