Research 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.
