Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media


Melissa's research typically focuses on gender construction and how it intersects with rhetoric, technology, literature, and science. Specifically, she is interested in how menstruation is presented and discussed in different kinds of media. More recently she has become fascinated by object-orientated studies and the question of how technologies old and new become gendered. She is also interested in the theory and practice of writing pedagogies in composition and professional writing.
