    Research Description
    My primary research interests center on feminist rhetoric and the history of women's and girl's opportunities for literacy education. I'm also interested in the teaching of writing in high schools and colleges and how educational institutions can work together to provide more learning opportunities for individuals throughout their lives. Most recently, I've been involved with museums and the ways in which they serve as educational institutions that construct public memory.
