MemberAmelia Chesley

I have a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from Purdue University. My research and teaching both engage with online communities of participatory knowledge-making and creative work, particularly volunteer groups and projects. I am also interested in intellectual property, remix culture, transdisciplinarity, and digital rhetorics. Currently I teach as an Assistant Professor of professional communication at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Outside of academia, I’ve worked as a graphic designer, web developer, librarian, and editorial assistant. When I have time, I also record audiobooks with LibriVox.
