Chelsea Murdock (Ph.D.) is a Marion L. Brittain Fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology. Her dissertation, "Drawing the Lines: Indigenous American Ledger Drawings and the Decolonization of Rhetorical Knowledge Spaces," discusses the material-rhetorical presence of Native American ledger art held in local archives and displayed by national museums. Understanding ledger art as a transrhetorical material presence in and across these spaces, Murdock converses with contemporary Native American/American Indian artists to bring their voices into the project. Her forthcoming publications include work discussing the visual/material rhetorics of ledger art associated with water protector movements, ruminations on fan writing self-publication and community literacy, and the material rhetorics of the NMAI-NY's Unbound: Narrative Art of the Plains exhibit.
