“Weird Code: Gender and Programming Languages”

My dissertation investigates how digital rhetorics are gendered, looking to rhetorics about, with, and in code itself to understand embodied power asymmetries in digital contexts. My article developed from this project,  “‘feminist_brevity_in_light_of_masculine_long-windedness’: Code, Space, and Online Misogyny” has been published in Feminist Media Studies.

My MA thesis, “Data Visualization of Indian Mutiny Causes in Victorian Higher Journalism” received the University of Alabama Outstanding Thesis Award, the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools Master’s Thesis Award for Humanities and Fine Arts, and an honorable mention for Victorian Review’s Hamilton Prize.
