Dr. Darcy Mullen is a 2017 Postdoctoral Marion L. Brittain Fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology. Earning her PhD from the University at Albany in May 2017 with the dissertation "There’s No Space Like Home: Rhetoric of the Locavore Movement," Mullen’s research has a strong interdisciplinary focus on the Rhetoric of Food, and Social Movement Studies. Her recent, peer-reviewed publications, include articles exploring many uses of “local” as a tool for cartography in the local food movement, the politics of place and tourism in Myanmar, a chapter on pedagogy and disability studies, and articles on the rhetoric of violence in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
