About Me

Hi! My name is Anna, and here are a few things about me:

  • I am a first-generation college student.
  • I am a current Composition, Rhetoric, and Literacy doctoral student at the University of Oklahoma.

My current scholarship interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the history of composition and rhetoric
  • experimental and liberatory pedagogies
  • issues of socio-economic class
  • feminism
  • curriculum development
  • the First-Year Experience/student persistence
  • writing center studies

In a way, you could say I am drawn to issues concerning  power dynamics.

I believe that my commitment to first-year students and teaching stems from the fact that I am a first-generation student on my way to becoming a working-class academic.
