Anna (she/her/hers) is a PhD candidate in Composition-Rhetoric at the City University of New York Graduate Center (CUNY) GC, concentrating in American Studies, a Fellow at the GC’s Teaching & Learning Center, and Assistant Editor at the Journal of Rhetoric, Politics, & Culture.

Across CUNY, I’ve worked in diverse teaching, scholarly, and leadership contexts: as a composition instructor, writing center consultant, Writing Across the Curriculum Fellow, and scholar in residence with institutes like the GC New Media Lab, Advanced Research Collaborative, and Gittel Urban Studies Center.

Broadly, my scholarship draws on queer-feminist, anti-colonial, and abolitionist frameworks to interrogate the politics and movement of literacy across education spaces and urban geographies. Other interests include digital pedagogy/rhetoric, archival methods, science and technology studies, and critical university studies.

My research has been (or will be) published in Community Literacy, the Journal of Interactive Technology & Pedagogy, HASTAC, Kairos, and elsewhere. I’ve earned numerous campus-based and national grants in support of my work, including the Rhetoric Society of America’s Graduate Development Award and Conference on College Composition & Communication’s AnzaldΓΊa Rhetorician Award.

Before starting my PhD, I received a BA in English and Biology from Oberlin College and worked in secondary education in the SF Bay Area, where I grew up.
