Research Focus


Juliette Kitchens teaches a range of composition courses and courses in the M.A. in Writing program. Her courses are designed to reflect her student-centered teaching philosophy and encourage writers to investigate their interests, communities, and (digital) environments. Kitchen’s research interests include identity studies, rhetorics of popular culture, rhetorics of technologies, and post-process pedagogies. In collaboration with three colleagues, she received a 2015 College Composition and Communication Research Grant to investigate the construction of faculty identities. Her most recent publication examines the intersections of postmodern, posthuman, and object-oriented subjectivities in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, a science-fiction television series. Kitchens regularly presents at international, national, and regional conferences representing a range of interdisciplinary scholarship.
