Overview

Jennifer Forsthoefel's dissertation examines parallel rhetorical constructions of interdisciplinary identity and specialization in notable accounts of the scholarly histories of Women’s Studies, Composition Studies, and Writing Center Studies and offers a method for instituting an intellectual relevance for Writing Center Studies that is based in the political commitments and goals of Women’s Studies. Jennifer has tutored in writing centers and taught composition and American literature courses since 2008. Also, she has given a variety of lectures and presentations on writing center theory and praxis to local, national, and international audiences. She teaches composition courses focused on issues in higher education, political rhetoric, and feminism.
