Krystin Nicole Gollihue

Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media


Krystin Gollihue's research explores the tension between digital and traditional making within contemporary Maker culture. Through this work, she aims to account for the deeply historical and multimodal ways women and people of color have created “Makerspaces” outside of institutional contexts. She also holds an MFA from the University of Alabama, where she built a hypertext manuscript that explored themes of myth, object orientation, and the female body. Krystin currently teaches ENG101, professional and technical writing, and serves as the Graduate Editor for the Philanthropy Journal at NC State. She is a HASTAC Scholar, Secretary for the CRDM Student Association, and Vice President of NC State's RSA Chapter.
