Rhetoric, Technology, Jewish Studies


I investigate questions of invention and cross-audience communication to better articulate how new ideas are created, revised, and circulated so that they may travel outside of and gain recognition beyond the particular audiences who initially imagine and introduce them. All of my projects explore ways that rhetorical theory can help us build or expand community by improving communication and creating situations where dialogue is more deliberative, interactions are more integrative, and collaborations result in more equal participation.
