I am Professor and Chair of the Department of Writing, Rhetoric and American Cultures at Michigan State University as well as a faculty member in American Indian and Indigenous Studies. I am lead researcher for the Digital Publishing Lab at MSU, director of the Cultural Rhetorics Consortium, editor-in-chief of constellations: a journal of cultural rhetorics, past chair of the CCCC, and editor emerita of SAIL: Studies in American Indian Literatures.
